  • Trouble with goggles

    I know there was a similar post about someone mentioning problems with swimming without goggles well I have the opposite problem I started swim training without goggles but I bought some today figuring I would need them for ocean swims. Well when I got in the pool it just felt really uncomfortable at first it feels better now but still a bit uncomfortable. Should I keep swimming with goggles or just go through training without them and use them for ocean only swimming?

    CompSci614 I would continue to use it. The PST 14 days before you ship is usually the only PST that you go without a mask. Get used to using a mask as it will be incorporated throughout your training. Sounds like by the end of your swim it felt more comfortable. Switching back and forth between no mask and using a mask wouldn't be a bad idea either, as getting comfortable with being uncomfortable is a feeling that BUD/s emphasizes.

      Blackwood appreciate the quick reply I will definitely keep transitioning and I think that is best solution whether in the pool or the ocean.

        Try throwing your goggles in the pool let them sink to the bottom dive down and put them on them clear you mask of water while under water helped me get used to wearing them It also helped with not wearing them I have a bad tendency to close my eyes if I don't have goggles on but you need them open to find your goggles. Best of luck man

              This is a great exercise to do every time one enters the water. Good looks brotha.

                    While this is relevant the swimming in buds at least first phase is all long distance. Build up the quads and running with weigh, I have a good friend in first phase right now an only trouble he is having is carrying the weight. Log pt and boat on heads run is rough, "I strongly suggest start running with a 20-30lb weight vest and make your own log to practice with"
