Today is a good day to be a Triathlete. 1:20 swim in the sun this morning. Just refueling with my second breakfast.

I loved the swim today............the river was like a mill pond which meant had to work in both directions..............the sun was shining and the river wasn't cold.....perfect............infact too perfect for IMW training

furthest ever swim apart from the 2 IM swims.................

I even managed to stay on M.Tri 's feet for 20 m on the return until i lost him again

Is any swimming going on on Saturday morning?  I'm in Cardiff, still trying to decide whether to cycle down or do a swim.  I'd like to do both but there just isn't enough time in the day!

Where is the nearest place to Newport to OW swim. Is it Parc Bryn Txmksncjdvsd or whatever? I'm frequently down that way for work and it would beat the hotel pool.

You could try sneeking into the Celtic Manor and park up by one of the small lakes there. There was a wetsuit tester session there and it was really good. One of the overflow car parks is right next to a 100m stretch...

bryn bach is not open to swimming.............infact we found out that there is nowhere which is why we found the river swimming at the Taff..................best thing that happened because its free and lovely

Its just 10/15 mins from newport so if you fancy it sometime let us know and i'm sure someone can join you

I think I'll skip this weekends swim, I've pulled something in my shoulder that meant I couldn't pull through properly on this mornings swim.  Lots of time for it to get better so no point risking making worse!

Sorry to hear that Pingu, take it easy ready for the race!

Thanks, I'm not too worried, 2 weeks is plenty to rest it and I do like an excuse to get out of the long swimming practises, I get bored when it gets to more than 45 mins!

I get bored very quickly in the pool, but not in lakes or rivers, I seem to have grown a love of it. Never thought I'd say that!

i can go anytime...............

despite having a massive mix grill tonight and a bottle of wine I'm sure I will be fine in the morning and keen to battle the torrents of the Taff.........

what do you want to do 9 am or earlier or later

9 am is good. I have a feeling we won't be going upstream very quickly!

Alan, agree, I don't find the open water swimming boring, too much going on!  Pool though, yawn ...

Right, I think I'm back in Wales a week Monday for a few days. If it's not too dark who would be up for an evening swim?
