Has anyone got experience swimming in the sea?
I live in India and the sea near my house is Bay of Bengal. This sea is madly violent. Crossing the initial waves is really tough. Being the first day today, I crossed them successfully but then suffered a lot.
After crossing the initial waves, it was a little calm comparatively. So I feel I can do swim practice in the run up for my International triathlon coming up in Malaysia this Sep.
Can anyone please suggest some good swim drills for sea swimming?
Or is it necessary that I practice in the pool for speed rather than sea and that the sea swimming is just to get the feel not for speed training?
