Subject: Lake Michigan Swim Practice
I am looking for large water swim practice to prepare for IM Florida. Does anyone know if there are groups that hold Lake Michigan swim events?

I don't know.  I am in for IMFL too  grand rapids tri and MITI are both good warm up events.  Also Steelhead.  Is snowing out today here in Lansing so I am thinking no OWS in the near future   I ha have done IMFL several times and I am in the Lansing area so if you have questions feel free to ask.  Having done the above mentioned races I can tell you the water will be far warmer and clearer come IMFL

MAPS is Meditation, Acclimatization, Practice, and Strategy, which are key for giving you the confidence and skills to execute the open-water swim in a triathlon well.

Then the race bell went off and I started swimming, and I thought I was going to die. All of my swim practice did not prepare me for the chaos that is the beginning of a triathlon.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

This month, we’re changing up the drills and they are a bit more complex. Stroke length and getting more into changing speeds is introduced.

Practice these three workouts each week for 4 weeks. Just complete the workouts and notice the changes to your stroke.

Some are getting a little OWS practice in, others are strategizing, the rest are just plain scared.

"I was talking to this guy I work with who's son does tri's and he says that fish and sharks "NIP" at you while you are swimming." Okay so now I am freaked out.
