The Greatest of All Time
I'm training for my first tri. We have a lake house and I want to do some of my swim training in the lake to get ready for the open water swim. My question is, how do you calculate distance in the water? I was going to try to put a buoy about 0.25 mile from our dock, or maybe farther if reasonable.
Thanks in advance!

One of these may work for you as well. if you have a buddy who is into golf or huting, see if he / she has one and give it a shot.
there are a couple of beaches around here with pre-measured buoys (1/2 and 1 mile). I do not go in the ocean unless it's a HOT day and the water is at least 70...which is almost never. With the recent shark attack and several great white sightings, I'm not too enthused about getting out there either.
