    Weather problems and not able to get boat available. They are hoping to get them out this week but there will be one at the 1K mark any way. Checked weather forecast and its looking good high weather temps. and low winds from north east.

    The 1km marker will be something at least.

    Found it hard swimming away from Blackrock without the buoys. Had to stop frequently enough to get an idea of how far I've gone. At least on the way back, I can spot the tower.

    At least having the 1km marker will allow me to set a target.


    Thanks

    Baz easy time trial today. What was your time.



  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Yeah, conditions were ideal. Finished the 4km in 79 minutes. Happy enough with that. Cut off was 95 minutes, so in good shape.

    Baz Well done now you have to get a boat if you don't have one already.



  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Have that sorted already thankfully.

    My biggest fear now is the long distance training swims. Need to do an 8km swim in about 4 weeks. That's going to be tough

    Well done Baz how was you swim



  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Good and bad Martin.

    Started off fantastically, but then some boat issues, and the outgoing tide had a big impact on me.

    Ended up going to far west initially, and had to swim directly into the outgoing tide for probably close to 2 hours.

    It will probably be the only time I curse the lack of wind on Galway Bay.

    Completed in anyway. Fitness was never an issue, so happy with the training I undertook. It was just more down to lack of experience from my boat captain and myself



  • Registered Users Posts: 994 ✭✭✭martin6651


    A lot of boats had the same problem including me and I have done the boat at least 14 times. I had my boat and swimmer pointed at the Mervue telecom tower for most of the swim and still went too far West but she finished. Well done for finishing.



  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Thanks Martin,

    At least ye were pointing towards Mervue - we were targeting Silver Strand :D

    Definitely started questioning myself when I swam for 40 minutes straight, and felt I had made no ground

    Delighted to have completed it. Been on my bucket list since I was a child

    Back in the water again. Limited to short distances.

    Good to see you back Martin.

    I've barely swam since July. Definitely nothing worth recording. Have the Chicago marathon this Sunday. Will start swimming again after that
