  8. I'm panicking under water but I'll report back next week my road bike should be here in the next week or so

  9. Holding your breath makes you panic... Its an automatic thing...if you can try to make sure you're blowing bubbles while your face is in the water, it let's you breath in a bit more calmly when your face is out of the water...
    And well need bike pictures...

  11. I've never done a Tri but have done Great North Swim a few times. You get the usual mix, same as at Park Run, of the ultra competitive ones, and the likes of me who just enjoy plodding round :thumbsup:

    A friend of mine did a triathlon and although a good swimmer got a bit landed on at the beginning. She did another one but didn’t try to get to the front the next time, may be an idea if you’re not a good swimmer?

  15. Like I said mate , get something to hold onto ,even a nice fit life guard :) Or float ta hold and then put your face in , you will then feel safe and won’t panic , it’s what I used to do with all my beginners , if you panic you will waist oxygen and you will breathe at wrong time , you need to get your confidence and relax . Wish I was up your way I’d train you up and get you through it . If you feel ok and confident with dog paddle ,do that then gradually dip you face in when your doing it . Like doing your bus only breathe out underwater ............................. and in when your mouth is not under :thumbsup:. Just try not to stress n do too much too quick , getting fit helps . Swimming is all about relaxing and breathing right . And also slacken your mankini off a couple of notches too:D
  16. Shall try this in the morning before work
