comment Going to compete 5km outdoor breaststroke
@Ruben, can you add some more info on the race (sea, stream, ..), your background in swimming and your current status (speed etc). Maybe the key will be the transition from "couch potato" to "steady state training", adding too much training too fast isn't usually a good thing.
