i had the same problems, and eventually took my son with me, who is a very god swimmer and went from struggling to swim 2 lengths out of breath to being able to swim 40 without stopping in a few weeks. since then i have joined a local tri club and have been going to their swimming sessions and have improved my technique. i would recommend either a swim coach or going along to your your local tri club's swimming sessions

pace yourself and save some energy for the run, you don't say if the times you gave are your average times or the best you have recorded, i guess its an average though, most important of all is to enjoy it, time is secondary to enjoyment imo, good luck

i realised that a couple of days after i posted, just kept forgetting to edit my post, hope your training is going well anyway

as long as you feel you will manage the swim in the time scale then go for the OD, as long as you train well enough and pace the race so that you last the distance then i reckon the extra distance won't be an issue.

i will be doing my first triathlon in August this year, and i am wondering if anyone could give me some links or recommendations of training plans that you have followed and found good, i have got a plan at the moment and have tried it out for a few weeks but i am undecided about it. any help and advice would be great

i have just came back from doing the Mumbles duathlon and i believe it takes in some of the 70.3 bike course, so id recommend doing a lot of hill training for the bike, i also know someone who done IM Wales last year and is doing it again this year, he said both the run and bike course where hilly, good luck anyway

i reguarly train on an empty stomach in the morning, but keep the time down to an hour or less, i have done a 2hr bike ride on an empty stomach once, and to be honest i felt light headed towards the end, so stopped at a local shop and bought some cereal bars to see me home the last 5 miles or so.
