An open water swim training session is typically endurance based, where you swim a suitable distance based on the water temperature. Often open water swim session goals are completing a set distance, getting used to the water temperature, and practising your stroke in varying conditions.
As the water temperature increases your distance should increase as well. For each training session keep a log of the distance you have swum, the water temperature and how you felt. For beginners the ideal water temperature for open water swimming is over 11 degrees, although everyone reacts differently to water temperatures. We suggest using the guidelines below for appropriate distances in different temperatures, but remember everyone is different and you should also taken into account the air temperature and any chill from the wind.
Only experienced open water swimmers will swim under 15 degrees for any distance without a wetsuit. Sighting — this is where you lift your head up out of the water to see in which direction you are going. You should be able to lift your head forward and up until your eyes are clear of the water to pick out a point to aim for, such as a marker buoy. Swimming around buoys — practise doing right and left hand turns and also U-turns around buoys without slowing down too much.
You need to be aware of the safety issues where you choose to swim. Try and find other experienced swimmers in your area, they will be able to advise on good places to swim. You should avoid swimming around places including busy harbours, boating piers, jet ski parks, rivers in flood, man made weirs, canals and fishing areas. Use a tow-float, this increases your visibility to boat users and other swimmers, if you get cramp you can hold onto it.

Wear a bright coloured hat so you are more visible when swimming. I planned to repeat the 5 x every 10 to 14 days, with about six pool or lake practices in between. I know from experience, I can adjust to a faster range of tempo in open water than in the pool. So I planned to push my lake tempo—with a goal of being comfortable and efficient a week or two later in the pool at that same tempo.
