Hi folks, 
I'm set on training for an Ironman event (10 months time) and i have reservations on the swim part of the event.

I've suffered from multiple dislocations of both left & right shoulders for past 10 years and this has always been my excuse for not attempting an ironman.

Ive had 3 anterior stabilisation operations, restricted movement in shoulders and a lot of dislocations since the operations, but, my shoulders are strong in terms of shoulder press/raise exercises. 

In terms of general fitness, I'm a strong runner, moderate cyclist and was once a strong swimmer (before shoulder injuries) 

 

has anyone had similar injuries restricting their swimming and if so, how did you overcome such issues? 

Im open to swimming training/coaching - anything really that'll get me through the swim and allow me achieve my goal

 

Many thanks for time folks, 

 

Scott
