    5k today, longest swim since the late 90's. I think that a double dose of Winterfish has helped me stay consistent.....

    Ryf World Record at Gdynia 70.3, Poland

    Armstrong used to pay people to flood message boards & comments sections of articles to say that he was the best because he worked the hardest & prepared better than anyone.

    Straight from the Armstrong playbook.

    Yep.. I have noticed the buoyancy difference between the pool & the bay (when it's a bit warmer!!), totally different feel - you can just drag the legs. The funny thing is, however... I have an issue with salt. Too long in the water & my tongue goes numb. When I was playing football, I had significant cramping issues (coming back from injury), and salt tablets were recommended... didn't go well - ended up making me sluggish, and keeping me awake all night with an elevated heart rate. I am apparently one of the 5% that is allergic to them. When I did the NZ ironman, I had no issues at all getting out & riding, but both times I did Melbourne, I was nauseous for most of the day post swim, and I'm wondering if the salt water had something to do with it.

    My old coach, who swims out of there, says that's the way to do it. Swims all year round, and doesn't notice the drop off in temp so much. I remember him telling me it was 6.7 one day...!!

    That's a similar course to the Australia Day swim. Nice effort

    Biggest July, and month, since around 1998. 60.5k..! Still trying to comprehend 80k weeks that the great ones do...

    Yep, if it's the course I do, that's about right.

    Fantastic, about 10 mins from my home. Did you swim with the Brighton guys, or the people that swim out of the yacht club?

    Starting to feel the effects of the increased volume - swimming ok, but feeling tired.. I've done more 3k sessions this year than any year in the past seven, and it's only July..! Really hoping to see the benefits come summer.
