Thanks!!! Just been able to read replies now. Will see far away I am from Comb reservoir - and will look up the Carneddau tri club. Stanners, will get back to you if I can make it out there, my wetsuit needs initiation!
Am fed up with getting lane rage and fighting for space to get a decent swim in in local pools. Gyms train people on machines but don't appear to do so on lane etiquette if they can be bothered putting lanes in at all and life guards aren't interested in sorting this out. But that is gripe of the day. Have got my wetsuit and want to go outside now...
I travel between Conwy and near Ashbourne. I tried the OSS facebook page for groups who train and sent off emails but I guess people in those areas are out swimming not online .
Does anyone know of sites near Conwy (and Ashbourne) where other swimmers go? I don't want to just hop into the sea near Conwy without some local knowledge of local hazards. Possibly Llandudno? Then I live near Ashbourne, only local site I can see on wild swimming is Mermaid's lake. Anyone know of other places where regulars train between Buxton and Ashbourne? Help! Even if it is link to an existing thread? Much appreciated if anyone can help? tx
I bought a pair of GT2170s goretex trail, in the same size I had previously bought all my Asics GT's (road). The trail show gave me so many problems, too tight over the arch. I managed to get into an Asics store and the assistant said that as the goretex was a bit stiffer, I should have gone up a half size. I am a ladies 9, gents sizes seem to be a bit wider for me (have long thin banana feet), so to go up to 9.5 (when my 'normal' shoe size is 8) never occurred to me. He also warned about the GT2000s that I should try before I buy. I live in the middle of nowhere so going into stores that stock my size is a mission for me. I am a bit annoyed at Asics 'tinkering' so have been looking at the Brooks Adrenaline ASR9, as years ago I picked Asics over Brooks when both fitted comfortable and was hoping Brooks had not fiddled around as much but am now so confused about sizing. The store prices are also quite a bit more than online. Not sure whether to take a chance with Brooks. I guess the answer is that I have to try on in a store
Start getting it checked out now, GP first! It might be a niggle only but get it checked out in case it gets worse. I am regretting not doing something earlier so best to rule out anything you can now! Hope you get sorted out
