Cotswold 226 - Any Pirates Doing It in 2016

Posted: 03/06/2016 at 08:58

I'll be in a Nuneaton tri suit this year... but with pirate cap for the run  . Really need to get the tri bike off the turbo and start getting some decent miles in on it. Picking up some new wheels on Sunday though so four weeks should be enough

Be good to see some familiar faces, I'm planning on doing the familiarisation day on the  19th June, camping at the Hoburne holiday park for the event.

Really sorry, I've not been on here much lately, life has been getting in the way. I've popped on to check when this is and realised that I'm now going to miss it as I have a family gathering that I "must" attend on the orders of those who must be obeyed

I've really enjoyed the last couple of these events that I've attended, and was really looking forward to catching up with old friends, making some new ones and also trying out my fitness following the running and swimming PB's for the start of the season. hope you can do another year so I can have another go.

Have a great time all, especially SA Mrs SA and Jordy

Sea swimming on holiday tips

Just as an update, I bought one of the chill swim floats and it worked brilliantly, I was able to run to the coast from the villa with a backpack containing the float my wetsuit and other swim kit. get changed on the beach and put the backpack and run trainers in the float. I swam for an hour along the coast and then had dry run trainers to put on for the run back. It was also great for resting on when I had just got through the breaking waves.

I'm going to Vale Do Lobo in Portugal, I was planning on taking my wettie, unfortunately no hotel pool for laps. Family villa with a "play pool" Thanks for the responses I'll keep the currents and water sports in mind.

I'm off on holipops in a few week and would like to keep up my swim training as well as run training. Any tips on sea swimming in a location that is not life guard managed?

I was planning on wading out to waist deep then swimming along the coast whilst my partner walked along side, I'll check locally for incoming / outcoming tide but I've normally just got in and swam in the UK, I think I'm only worried because of it being in foreign country.
