3km

The pool picked a less than ideal day to be 4 degrees cooler.... not that 25 is cold, but I was looking forward to the usual warm bath

Hoping to get my winterfish and runhundred campaigns underway with Byron Bay Olympic today.  Haven't trained for 10 days as been struck with manflu.  Doctor yesterday advised me not to race but i am not a fan of conventional medicine so went to the tarot reader/herbalist at the flea market and she's fixed me...

I feel for you FFF, but just be thankful for the fact that you can swim. In the sort of weather you're having, it really isn't a bad alternative. ;)

3k of form work at centenary pool... "heated" apparently. Planning on a long dam swim tomorrow and starting to wonder if I can fit my long sleeve wettie over the top of my sleeveless wettie

And I'm starting to think it's getting cold too, so I may relent & wear a cap.

Checking in with a 2.5km session today, for a paltry 5.3 for the week.

It wasn't so cold in the dam this morning, not as bad as I thought it would be though I was wearing a L/S wettie. Bloody cold afterwards though. Swam 6.3, a little further than planned and was starting to think 8 or 10 but then I remembered it was Mother's day and decided I'd better do the right thing.

Bringing up the rear as bailed on Friday's pool visit for wine... Managed 1.6km this morning, bit too chilly for any longer.

4.3km this morning. No wettie, but did wear a cap. Brain freeze for the first couple of minutes, but settled in and it wasn't too bad after that. Like Mike, I got a bit cold afterwards, but the heated seats make a huge difference applying heat directly to your back & bum.

26.4km for the week which is a PB for this year, so likewise Mank (and Andrew for this year), thanks.

Good on you. Thank you!!

 

 

I need someone to add in my entry please. I did 3.9km this morning. I can't enter it at school because it won't let the file be opened, and I can't do it on my phone either. :(
