Open water stomach bugs
I have done 4 open water swims and a few open water training sessions in lakes and a couple of times had a bad stomach causing the inevitable. Bearing in mind the 2 times its happened are after events recently in the Thames, Winsor swim series and then Windsor Triathlon. I realise the Thames isnt that great if you take an unexpected gulp but are stomach bugs comman after open water swims and is there any pre race options to help reduce tje risk as I dont want it to put me off the open watet part of Tri as I am just enjoying getting in to it. Any feedback or advice welcome. Cheers.
