Baz you should be able to put in some distance this week with very light Easterly winds and rising water temps.

After 28 days in a row, I'm definitely going to take it a little easier this week. If I average 500m a swim, that'll be OK.
My shoulders will thank me

Its the time constraints, rather than conditions that are stopping me really. Can only really go between 9 and 5 each week day, due to family commitments, and then work gets in the way. Try to go at 9 most days, but that limits me to about 15 minutes max in the water

Got in yesterday, 7.2 degrees. Did 3 buoys from Kavanagh point around to 40ft. Great push around so around 8 mins in

More relaxed this week. In each day, but a few times were just about watching a friend as he builds up distance/confidence

A few ups and downs health wise over the past couple of months but hopefully in a position now to start ramping up the volume.

Not a great week for distance swims. Conditions poor for the majority of the week. Maxed out at around 650m one of the days. Still, enjoyable dips all the same

Have to agree with you Baz had a short swim week distance wise will have to make up next week.

Better week than last week. Conditions were excellent for the majority of the week, but definitely didn't take full advantage. Time constraints unfortunately stopped me from doing many long swims. Temperature is rising nicely though

Another week with plenty of small swims, and no long distances.
Water temperature seems almost tropical at this stage

Got in for my first sea swim of the year early today, absolutely amazing watching the orange ball rise over the horizon. It wasn't as cold as expected- mind you I was covered from head to toe in neoprene! Still have a ways to go to get to you lads standard
