TAPER SMART

Get in peak condition for race day by ensuring your carb laoding strategy is effective

EXPERT ADVICE

Kathy Findlay is an open water swimmer, nutritional therapist and advanced sports and exercise nutritional advisor providing personalised nutritional advice and plans to athletes. foodforsport.wix.com/nutrition

You’ve completed the training, worked hard on your nutrition and race day is now in sight. It is time to enter the taper phase. The taper phase is a balance of rest and conditioning, usually the last two weeks of your training schedule. Being in perfect shape for your event is a result of backing off a bit and doing just the right amount of training. Not backing off enough will result in a body that hasn’t had time to fully repair itself from the muscle stresses of training, and backing off too much results in an out of shape swimmer.

About Outdoor Swimmer

In this issue we explore wild swimming in Scandinavia, where the right to roam extends to swimming outdoors – in some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery. We also bring you reports from some our favourite events of the summer – more swims for you to add to your bucket list! We hear from Howard James and Sabrina Wiedmer about their record breaking swims – the earliest (and coldest) English Channel crossing and the first woman to cross the Dál Raita Channel, respectively. And if that all sounds a bit too hardcore and serious, Dan Abel shows us how to keep our swimming fun. Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming.
