Thanks for the info B. Gonna buy the pool one for training and attempt to save for the GPS in time for swim in May I like the idea of getting performance stats online. Nice way to track progress.
Oh anyother question. Has anyone used one of these Garmin swim watches. I quite fancy the one that counts pool lengths and total distance swam in a week (£110 ish) and I like the look of the GPS one but cant afford really
Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations.
SuperCaz that swim sounds like an epic challenge!! Good luck with it and the training. Sounds like perfect pre channel training.
Im psycing up to finding somewhere outdoors to train for my swim in May. Got to get me used to outdoor swimming and make a wetsuit or no wetsuit decision
anyone else got any challenges on the horizon?
Congratulations on the swim!! Very good time.
I wouldnt have thought it would be 50/50 male-female split in the top 10.
Let me know if you decide to do the Eton swim. I am leaning towards a wetsuit now with what everyone has said. Going to have my first outdoor dip this sunday in my suit so can test it.
Thanks slugs, i thought if anything the suit would constrict and slow you down if anything.
Do you guys carry on swimming through the winter months?
Thanks for the info B. Good luck with your swim at the weekend.
Its nice to hear that the boredom on ow is less. I was getting a bit fed up in the pool after 5k.
I was debating some training this weekend but didnt know if the water would be too cold at this time of year. Will have to man up and give it a go
Im excited to get outside and experience swimming in the great outdoors.
