where I swim at Market Bosworth has had problems with weed - I had it stuck to my googles on more than 1 occassion including mid race.

They also have HUGE fish which are literally 15" long or more. A couple of swans/ducks live in the island in the middle of the lake but never bother the swimmers.

I punched a swan during the swim, that'll teach 'em to poo everywhere!

I seem to remember a swan using Meldys back as a take off ramp

Duck shit? Can't wait.  Last time i did the Vit it was knee deep in shit at the start.

duck poo capital is the lake @ Cowman.  The fermenting of the poo keeps the lake warm.

That is so very true!   It was most surreal loking up and back to take a breath and seeing a huge pair of orange feet running over me !!

when the swan saw Meldys stare then I'm sure it must have drowned from shock

I'm in my new (new to me as its 18 years old) caravan with family in tow. Bought it to involve the family in my first full distance as I feel it may be addictive and be required again

I've gone for a new road bike as current training one is an old steely. Need to purchase some tri bars for it as well.

My biggest regret is selling my old bike. I would do more winter training if I still had it as I would be bothered about keeping it too clean. Can't be arsed to clean my training/racing bike so most is done on my turbo.

I use my steely for turbo/commuting and up until yesterday all other rides. Going to keep using it for turbo/commuting and use the new one for all other rides(as long as its dry and one perfectly clean roads with no chance of any dirt getting on my baby);)
