Solving the fuelling and hydration puzzle

For all endurance sports, two major factors that cause fatigue and ultimately slowing down are dehydration and running out of carbohydrate. In open water swimming the situation is complicated by the water and ambient temperature, sunlight and the use (or not) of wetsuits, all of which will impact sweat rates.

Don’t let the clock spoil your open water swim

Last weekend I took part in Swim Serpentine, a new open water event on the UK calendar. It ran over two days, with a mass a participation (wetsuit or tow-float compulsory) 1-mile swim on the Saturday followed by the inaugural British Open Water Swimming Championships on Sunday. This was a 2-mile (3.3km) race under FINA rules, so no wetsuits. We were there for the entire weekend with a stand for the magazine and I also did both races.

Kennebunk’s Susan Knight swims her way into the record books in the English Channel.

Long-distance, open-water swimming is a solitary sport — hour after hour, mile after mile of lonely paddling in vast waters. It attracts people possessed of quiet grit, not to mention muscled backs and arms. As Susan Knight nears Pine Point Beach in Scarborough, she’s just finished a 3-mile swim. Still in the water, she moves easily through the sluggish surf, stepping over gentle rollers, her skin glistening and freckled in the morning sun.
