    Fair play lads for getting in the OW in January. Martin, in particular, that's very impressive volume. All of my swimming has been in the warmer fastlane (swim treadmill), I'm 20k from the sea and while I'd like to say that's what's keeping me away, I'm happy enough not to test that theory! But hopefully soon enough.

    Struggling with the lack of changing facilities where I swim.
    It's fine when it's dry, but trying to get changed into warm clothes in the rain is next to impossible


  • Registered Users Posts: 990 ✭✭✭martin6651


    Thanks Kurt glad you are getting some swimming in. We had a 3.6 water temp. mid month thank god it was only for one day.

    Baz Are you still getting in a swim daily. With the wind from the East cold enough to freeze the whatsit off you. No shelter from it on this side of the bay blows straight into the shelter in Blackrock.

    Yeah, still getting in each day. Yesterday was tough though. I'm swimming out in Renville, so we have no changing facilities or protection really, so trying to get into dry clothes asap. I was home from my swim yesterday at around 9:40, and I was still warming up two hours later.

    FairPlay lads, sea is outside my 5klm limit. Swam in sea all year round for few years. Remember doing 200m in Sandy cove and sea temp was 6 degrees. While getting out hail stones rained on us.

    Keep safe lads


  • Registered Users Posts: 990 ✭✭✭martin6651


    Mad m I have had the hail shower while swimming and it stings on the back. Water Temp. was 4.9 yesterday but that was warmer than the air when changing afterwards.

    Same here with the strong East winds I could not get in any good distance swims
    this week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,002 ✭✭✭mad m


    Got in today. Did around 300m. Lantern lovin jaysus. Very sharp, arms like lead 10m from getting out, but once out happy days. Great to get a dip in. Don’t rat me out lads


  • Registered Users Posts: 990 ✭✭✭martin6651

    No, Dublin Southside. Few friends got out. First time I’ve heard them say it was tough. Must of been that chilly wind

    Fair play to you, life is for living and getting your dose of Vitamin Sea is an essential purpose. I got in twice myself this week but only managed a minute at a time. Its life affirming.


  • Registered Users Posts: 990 ✭✭✭martin6651


    Well done guys water temp rising slowly here. I'm lucky I'm 3k walking distance from sea so I can do my daily swim. The walk warms me up going both ways.
