I'm not around this weekend, so won't be able to come.  I'll be in the sea on the south coast this weekend

Whah!! I didn't realise this thread was active in such an exciting way!!!!!!

LET'S GO SWIMMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Except I'm going to Devon on Saturday, so unless it was at 8am, I can't do it. And I don't expect anyone to get up at that time to go jump in a river with me.... With all the rain we're to be expecting, it's going to take 2 horus to get up to the motorway and 2 minutes to get back - based on previous experience after rain......

Very annoying actually as my weekends are all full until 10th Sept now... I might be able to fit something in on the 3rd.... and then I'm on holiday. And then it's October.

Bugger, now I'm in a quandary. Had planned being out early Saturday morning for my last mega long bike ride before Tenby, but a swim in the river, two laps I assume this time, would also be good. Oh what to do. If I'm there, I'm there, otherwise I'll be out on the box, or overslept.

what time shall I pick you up Jevans

Would an 8am pick up be ok? I feel really cheeky.... but I suppose I am on the way.... we'll have to work out a run or ride down there sometime.

I might only have time for 1 lap though..... (to the bridge and back?)

loved the swim this morning

if anyone else is up for one tomorrow let me know.can't make next weekend but can make after work in the eveings next week as well

river wasn't too bad today.was expecting it to worse after the rain but obviously the rain must have been lighter than last time

I enjoyed it very much too! Thank you Seren, for being patient with my four-weeks-off panics I had to start off with... very pleased it didn't hold me up too much and I was back into the swing of it by the end.

I may be able to make 3rd or 4th Sept and 10th Sept (IM Wales weekend though?), but will just be a weekend swimmer since I need to run (and reluctantly bike) as much as I can for now. After that I can't do anything until October and I'm going to start worrying about the cold. Might try neoprene booties.... but am also thinking I might just accept that it is a seasonal sport...

In Lancaster this weekend and can't get my head around the logistics of an after work swim yet (but if you arrange one, I can try!).

Wednesday morning would be good. Let me know a suitable time. Two laps would be good.

I can manage any time as I am not working and don't mind early starts..............2 laps would be great.............lets hope not too much rain in the next 24 hours...........

Ooo, have a lovely time. I think I have worked out the logistics of being able to do this if I don't have to be in the office until 10am. Woo! But I need to be in the office before 10am tomorrwos. So I won't be in the water, but I might manage a run down the Taff Trail so I'll give you a little wave!
