#8 - Drafting and Donuts

FINALLY I get to talk about food! Except, not really, but at least the name of a food is in the title, right? This episode talks about drafting in swimming and how it can be achieved in the pool and the open water. What is drafting? I’ve been swimming for over 26 years and it took me about half that time to find out, yikes. But fear not, we’re here to inform you! Chances are you’ve drafted before and just haven’t realized it. And more than likely you’ve been drafted off of, which we also touch base on. This is a great skill to help you improve in your open water races without having to do any extra training, as well as helps you better understand the mechanics of how to make the best of your situation in crowded waters.
