When you planning on going next?
way too early to be in open water... brrrrrr
FF .. I might try and get there on weds eve as they are open late , straight from work , so if you are in town and can get to IOD i could give you a lift .. otherwise will be weekend after next i think .
Purple ..i see that Ocean Lake Tri are running some mid week duathlons ( swim n run ) at Leybourne starting on the 9th May . Might be worth a look ? think they are relatively short swims but should be good practice, and its a nice run around the lake . I think i'll try to make a couple of them if i can . Whats your race in 6 weeks ? .. I know a very good coach that works at leybourne and holborough if you want to brush bup on your OW technique before race day .. gonna be booking up a couple more lessons with her myself between now and outlaw if i can ...the two sessions i had last year transformed my swim completely.
Hi GB ... the following week is a "splash and dash" duathlon at the Leybourne lake .. so will probably do that instead, its a choice of 750 or 1500 swims , and a 5k run .. (but just add laps to make it a 10 k. etc ) . Its being attended by the former "IM Lanza winner Ain-Alar Juhanson" who according to google (had to look him up as the name wasnt one i'd heard of) is the heaviest man ever to win an IM event, so i thought i'd pop along and get him worried about keeping that record
Nearest tube station will be Hornchurch or Upminster .. End of the District line.
Purple .... wow !!! .. thats hardcore .. all the best with that . Will PM you those details
GB .. its a 40-50 min drive , so not so bad ... but if this bloody rain doesnt stop soon we'd probably be able to swim all the way there anyway.
