Its in the Eton rowing lake they used for the olympics. I dont have a kayak but the total swim is 4 laps and there is a general feeding point at one end for all distances and one at the other end for just the 10k people. On the 10k only one you can take your own food onto the pontoon.
I guess on breaks a planned small breather at each end of the lap would be good? So every 1.25k.
Thanks for all the nutrition advice!! I am going to get shopping for supplies for the pontoon
Good luck on your swim Caz. 6 hours sounds like a big ask!
Hey guys long time since any one has posted here so thought I would post and try to get some advice from you guys.
Its my Eton 10k swim on Monday and I am getting a little bit nervous now . I did a (very) small practice open swim in my wetsuit and it seemed ok to swim in.
My question is do any of you have any advice? I am anticipating doing the 10k in 3hrs 30mins at a steady pace with a break or two. Any last training or diet or wetsuit or ?? tips??
I am not training this week as I am guessing a good rested body is going to help. Training prior was good got to doing 5k in the pool with relative ease and could have gone on. Crams were an issue in the pool but mainly pushing off the wall so I am guessing these will be lessened on the day?
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
