I'm training for a 5 mile swim in August this summer and I think I have everything under control but would appreciate some advise from people who have some experience with open water swimming.

It is a fresh water event. I'm tuning up with a few 1 and 2 milers in the meantime and have been training for 2 weeks. (3500-4300m per workout/4-5 days week) I'm planning on increasing the workout volume gradually through the summer.

Any tips would be helpful.
