    Warm ups- before a race

    Please to be sharing your pre-race warm ups. I don't have one for LC races but for short course stuff I try to do a few hundred swim after running for about 10 mins.

    I usually do a 2km run with some pickups and some stretching. Not keen on doing swim warmups and then waiting around. I like to leave getting into the water as late as possible.

    my warmup for the swim is from the entry point to the start line, then generally tread water for a while. I dont do a run beforehand as i figure the swim and ride will have loosened me up by that stage. I do all my stretching before jumping in the water.

    the stretching is mainly arms and shoulders with some legs as well.

    run back to the car to get what I have forgotten. Get in the water to acclimatise (its cold down here remember) thats it for me.

    I sometimes swim out to the buoy and back but that's about it
