Another factor to consider is in the swim you’re literally going from 0-60 with arms and legs all moving as the heart deals with this sudden demand on the body. In cold water swims (60 – 70F) controlling and holding your breathing also becomes a challenge. I’ve raced in over 20 triathlons and my advice is always start off slow, let the body adjust and proceed at a comfortable pace.
