Cat - well I don't seem to have any 'bites' from swimming, so maybe the slightly cooler weather has sorted the swimmers itch out??
Also weed didn't seem that bad down the back straight (although straight is something that is rarely used when describing my swimming!!)
Good news. Keep an eye on your arms/legs where the wettie doesn't cover. I didn't seem to pick anything new up on Thursday.
Well done Fraggle!! But the bads news is the bites take a day or two to materialise!! (But if they've sorted the weed out you should be OK )
Good for you Fraggle. I was there earlier too. SWIMMING IN THE FECKIN WEEDS.
There are huge great bushes of weeds on the first 200m or so of the back stretch, that now reach almost out of the water.....freaks me out that stuff. Water was lovely and warm.
Rafi - does this mean you are afflicted?
Yes I spoke too soon - got a couple of 'bites' on my ankle - itch like crazy!!
One fresh one on my hand. Thats it, back in the pool tomorrow. Not risking any more itching.
It's definitely not on the racing line....that's why I'm all eaten.
I'm going to head down tomorrow again - Raf you going ? would be nice to put faces to names before the weekend.
(still no bites )
Lucky you on the bites!! But won't be there tomorrow night - need to sort things out for the weekend as I'll be heading to work early Friday morning (for a bit anyway) before heading of to HPP!!
ok - will see you there friday early eve
No bites but had a run in with some weed after 2nd bouy on Saturday. Yuck
