I enjoyed swimming at school but that was forty years ago. When my friend first suggested we give some of the State Ocean swims a go I was quite apprehensive. I guess it’s a male thing but we didn’t even consider the shorter distances – It was “going long” or drown in the attempt!
Good nutrition is integral for optimal performance, whether your event is a hard days work or a 2.8km ocean swim. Nutrition is interlinked with performance as it provides the fuel, fluid and nutrients you require when training for the Harbour Crossing, but nutrition practices on the day of the crossing are just as important to ensure you are in top form.
