Any interest in a midweek long swim outside the wicklow harbour starting next week? Tues or Weds about 7 or half 7? Steady pace. starting 1500 and working up to 3km over the next weeks in prep for the 4km Glendalough swim.
Not an official swim-just want to get some distance swims in.
Don't forget the swim that is being organised to raise money to help Galen get really started on his triathlon career in Ernest, the money will be spent on a racing wheel chair that can be used in the run section of the event,
Its a great swim, just fun its not a race, we did it last year and as we are using the tides to our advantage it doesn't feel like the 3.6k, especially since you can wear fins ! I think we did it in 1.06 and we were taking it easy and waiting for each other, no heroics !
Not a bother if you want to give it a try and get into a boat if you feel tired.
It is for a great cause and one close to our hearts as athletes
Jamie-thats great you can accompany us! You can keep the monsters from the deep away. Safety in numbers and all that.
