Nausea and Swimming
I am training for my first sprint trialthlon. Everything is
going fine except that I feel nauseous in the middle of the swim every time.
Do you know why this happens or how I could prevent this from happening?

It’s always hard to diagnose swim problems without being on the deck observing the actual swim, but there are two things we’ve run into that have caused nausea for us in the past:
- If you have eaten too close to swim training, you can get really nauseous…and throw-up. It’s really embarrassing.
- If your neck muscles or head hurt because of bad swim posture, that can cause you to feel nauseous.
We think you should check with your Dr if you are really concerned though.
Good luck and let us know if you’re able to figure it out. Your advice might help another reader.
