Today, Jo, John, Moley, Neil and myself met at the slip for another swim. No wetsuits..... great evening for it, sun shining and calm water. We went outside the harbour tonight, not as cold as I thought it was going to be, in-fact it was nicer than inside the harbour, which has a bit of a stink at the moment. Anyway, we swam about 1km, used it as a session to see how I was, stuck to John like glue again, Jo and Neil were well ahead, Moley only 50m behind, he's swimming really well this year. Then with 250 to go John found another gear and made 15m on me. Still, last year he was mins ahead so from my perspective its very positive, a good winters training, I reckon. When we got out, oh the cold...... I shivered...... for an hour. Worth it, I really enjoyed the swim. Tomorrow a run and weight session, first weights for about 6 weeks......... now a well deserved glass of wine.
