Buttercup, Pixie and Badger, I didn't get back from work till gone 7 I think I dragged my feet as I'm having a bit of a laze, Ive had a good week so far and running into work tomorrow so not feeling too guilty, sorry about missing you guys though, I would have spotted you all easily with our new hats, hope you all had a great swim. I wont be there Saturday as I'm doing B'ham Oly on Sunday

that would explain why I didn't see you then!
Was gorgeous!

sign on the gate saying NO wetsuits and it was well over 24

did 3laps and was my 2nd fastest OW swim on the year with the fastest being half the distance.

finally remembered that OW can be lovely today

Had a lovely chat with Buttercup and made plans with Badger - well discussed plans!

Also meet another pirate whose name I've forgotten  who was on his 1st OW this season and 1st ever sans wetsuit swim but having done Lanza I'm sure it wasn't an issue!

Moonlight swim at Taplow on 24 July sounds fun if anyone wants to join me

You were Speedy Gonzales there last night EP! I did two to your three! Plans? Plans? *Spidey senses alerted*

Sorry I missed you guys sounds like I missed a good sesh, I fizzled out last night, I'm letting the weeks training absorb today , (been reading Wiggo's book, he talks alot like that)

EP are these cunning plans ?

I need to work out what I am doing but I am potentially up for this as I work about 2 miles away and I loved the moonlight swims I did with Supercaz at Hayling Island

Soup I'm at mum's next week so this could be possible but I may be going to London with son as he wants to do the museums so won't say 100%. is it OK just to turn up?

Buttercup I was amazed last night - I swim better without the wetsuit!

Plans consist of err doing some tri events

I enjoyed last nights swim, it felt like i'm starting to recover a little from the outlaw, did four laps. The top bit of the lake was the weediest i've ever known though, was like swimming over damp a soft brush. Might cycle over in the morning in tri suit have a dip and cycle home.

Pleased to hear swimming without the wetsuit is OK, Vachery tri on Sunday and they're probably going to be banned, going to Heron in the morning for a practice.

If anyone is around in Nottingham Colwick park on weds 6-7:30 open water swim .

19/07/2013 at 20:29

Chris - what is it like at Colwick? Do you have to sign up online? Might be able to make it next week!

19/07/2013 at 20:57

TB that is my plan for tomorrow  

19/07/2013 at 21:45

Don't worry about no wetsuit,

if you can swim which you obviously can you'll be fine. No struggling to get the wetsuit on and no trying to get rid in T1

Off to my 3rd swim in a week without wetsuit tomorrow, I look forward to those way less faff

19/07/2013 at 22:09

EP - fine to just turn up.

Mc there are showers and cup of tea after. Its 5 or 3.50 if you join the club (15.00) to join. It's ok the course is 750m in a circle bouys are quite hard to spot but I enjoy it more than hpp. Let me know if you are going and we can both invade with pirate attire

20/07/2013 at 08:48

ok, well I should be ok to go on Weds, I'll let you know on Weds though in case something crops up. Will be fun to go in pirate gear, complete with new swim hat don't know if I can swim in a circle zigzag is more my knid of course

Lol zig zag is fine with me I usually think I've done really well on a lap and realise I have missed out the bouys by a few hundred meters 

21/07/2013 at 20:22

lol  good sighting practice then!

mwahhaaa yes. I am thinking of cycling there on Wednesday, If you go would you like to ride along??

21/07/2013 at 20:28

I would probably need to drive actually - don't think I would have time to cycle, have to wait for OH to get home from work so he can look after the kids!
