    How do the age groups work.

    Nope still a youngster - it’s 50-54, then 55-59. And it’s the age you are at 30 December. Next year you can join the truely decrepit ones.

    Crikey - I’ve led a charmed life. A few lice bites. A greyhound attacked my dog and I got bitten on the ear trying to save it - I was very proud of that scar. My horse kicked me in the guts, but I am pretty sure it was an accident and he was just pissed at the horsefly hovering around his flank. Also a nasty cat scratch when I was trying to dress her up in dolls clothes. She didn’t mind the dress it was more the trying to keep her in the pram as we walked down the street. I’m pretty sure the fox terrier was friendly. Ever seen a cat climb a tree with a dress on?

    I was one of the last waves to go 8:40 or thereabouts. I’ve swim in quite a variety of conditions over the last few years and I have to say it was more disconcerting than rough. Someone made reference to it being a washing machine and I think that described it best. Normally with chop I adjust my head and breathing angle to suit the conditions but I just couldn’t do it. It was chop every which way so it was a matter of digging in and hoping that the particular breathe didn’t include a face slap of water. 🤷‍♀️ Unfortunately I either swallowed to much water or ate too much yoghurt for breakfast which resulted in something I’ve never done and never want to do in a swim again. 🤮 of interest was the number of people walking out of the water and up the beach. There’s always a few but most jog, the dozen of people or so in front of me were all walking. insofar as heat is concerned my watch had it at 31 in Death Valley but I didn’t find it particularly bad. Could of been due to the fact I was doing the walk of the wounded 😳. I also had a bag of ice. 😂

    Serious medical question

    are you getting any body work done? although always a good idea to get a constant headache checked out with your GP, the increased load you are placing on your body can also cause headaches.

    Nope the mugs were back last year. I think they had a year with medals, but the feedback was bring back the mug !

    Socks is where it’s at. One year the QTS gave out socks to participants at every race. (7 in total, even better at the last few races they were just tossing extra socks at everyone). Best damn idea ever. Water bottles ? Everyone has a million of them. You can only have so many towels, and the poor quality string bags only last till the next race. But socks, especially if they don’t change the colour are just awesome. Sadly I’m down to my last three, as in singular sock. Hope they bring them back for the 2018/19 season

    if this is the case, maybe they'll dig out the thermometer they used a few years back when they first made it a beach swim....
