Open Water Swim Training

Now that the weather and more importantly the water, is getting warmer a few of us are going to Hampstead Ponds for some open water swim training after work.

Last week the temperature was 17C, we lasted about 25 minutes but if you wear two swim caps, neoprene socks/boots and go regularly you can build this up.

It's a great venue...

Don't expect to find towels, razors and deodorant in the changing rooms...

  • 17 degrees? That's warm. Wasn't it seven or something stupid when we first went prior to IM Austria? It was April.

  • Apparently the pool was 86 at DW yesterday, personally I thought it was still a little nippy....
