    My biggest week for a long time too, 25k. Mainly just distance and form with little speed. Think I’ve only ever bettered that distance about 30 years ago. Helps a bit by dropping the running now the GC Marathon is over. This weeks swimming will be up there as well then I’ll be tappering off leading into the Magnetic Island swim.

    Yes Hamilton Island is a nice place to train, there are a few distractions though

    Could someone please add 2.2 to my Fri tally. I have a problem with my pc and for some reason I’ve never been able to access the winterfish scorecard with my iPhone.

    Longest swim for a couple of months, 6k. It could have been a little monotonous but for the synchronised swimmers rehearsing their moves in the next lane. Amazing how much work they're putting in under the water and how long they hold their breath. They warmed up with a set of 10 x 50's..........under water.

    Ex, ........ what was the water temp that day a certain Aussie pro got pulled out of the water in the NZ Series race.

    We’ll be London again next year, all of July & Aug. I would be your support crew/photographer but I don’t fancy 12 hours of listening to your boss complaining there’s better things she could be doing. Best leave her shopping in Chelsea with Jo. 😁 We could’ve swum a family relay crossing but I don’t do cold. 🇬🇧.......🏊...... 🇫🇷

    Excellent..... I've just signed up for a trial pool & gym membership at Centenary Pool. $30 for 30 days. I only selected 50k for this 2nd challenge as I'll take a month off swimming after the Magnetic Isl to Townsville swim in late July

    I'm entered in the full but injured my knee a few weeks ago. Disappointed as I've put in more miles than I have in years. I'll give it as long as I can but I'm doubtful I'll be lining up for this one. Might be late switch to the half.

    Are you trying to get us kicked off the dam? SEQWater aren't happy about the swimmers there now

    Decided I'll be wearing a wetsuit for the Magnetic Island to Townsville swim next month and ATM I'm leaning towards my cheap Dare2Tri sleeveless over my B70 Helix full suit. My L shoulder is pretty average at best and I'm a little worried about the fatigue factor from the extra resistance over that distance. The longest I've swum in the full-suit is only 6k. I recon the Dare2Tri sleeveless could be more bouyant in the legs too.

    Local Pool entry fee

    I once paid £6 in Battersea London to share a lane in a 25yd pool with 20 others. That was about $10 AU at the time ☹️

    I have a wetsuit material cap you can borrow for the winter

    Despite backing off for the last week or 2 because of chronic L shoulder pain I've just entered the Magnetic Island to Townsville 8k open water swim. Perhaps not the smartest move I've ever made.
