OH: still dithering like at 14:40?!NZC: I think you are the tough one round here! Heat, race, hilly 14!
AH - accidental repost (now edited) all due to an undocumented feature of my (smart ) phone
"The biggest seas currently on the planet are going to be west of Orkney over the next 60 hours. They will be monstrous, with a height of 48+feet...."
Batten down the hatches (although relatively calm just now)
I guess kayaking and sea swimming are out for a few days, OH! Hold on tight!
And if you can't see (FB) image:
Black represents 48' or greater swell (the top end of the scale)
Batten the hatches indeed!
NZC - I figured it was going to hurt whether I'd finished my run or not and I'd feel a little better if I did have to have a couple of days off having the run in the bank. I have a strict 'don't look unless you're going to do something about it' policy it always hurts much more once you can see what you've done! Sounds as though you've had a couple of hard days.
Flippindeblink! A bit breezy up there then! My brother lives on Lewis and works on a fish-farm, hope they dont get any damage!
That's height of swell forecast rather than wind but wind forecast is almost as dramatic 60mph gusting 71mph (MSW)donaldo - Hopefully your brother's fish farms are on the east side of Lewis
Might not some (gentle) swimming be therapeutic LM.H ?whatever hope you recover quickly
AH I've not been kayaking since Boxing Day
Swimming done.After last week's time trials, Coach did a bit of rough maths and said that I might come out of the IM swim in 1:40. I find that hard to believe, then he said that the numbers predicted 1:30. Personally I'd be glad to be out inside 2 hours. Time (and tide) will tell.
Thinking of all the islanders, and just because they may be on the hiding side of the island doesn't mean that the swell and waves don't go around the corners.
