To kick or not to kick, that is the question
Hi everyone, new to the forum and just getting back into into training after a couple of years of little activity. I completed a sprint triathlon in 2016 and loved it so am trying to build myself back up, and like most of us, the swim is the toughest bit. I competed the last one using breaststroke, but want to do freestyle going forward, and wondered if you lot could offer some advice. A friend of mine who has competed many triathlons has said that I shouldn???t be sun g my legs on the swim to save them for later, but the problem is if I try I just sink!!! Should I be resting my legs, or should I be kicking? If am am kicking, what sort of kicking ration should I be using? Cheers!
