Thinking of having a go at Tri. Been a runner since 2000, mainly 10 Ks and half marathons. Been a cyclist for years (tourer mainly) and so OK there, with a bit of training. Started swimming but...oh dear.
Any websites you know of that give clear instructions / techniques? Or is there really no substitute for an "Improvers" swimming course?
Whaddya reckon?
How did you get into tri?

total immersion books/dvds/training camps are good

otherwise find a decent coach - you'll find a few pointers makes your crawl improve in leaps and bounds

Is there such a thing as a beginners event later in the year?
Where's the best place to get a list of events?
Thanks all, again!

good luck

There's a beginners event near Reading on 18th April - have a look at for details.

London is a good one for beginners, or the Eton Super Sprint series. Only 400m swim and no currents.
