A good 5k skins swim before work this morning at Coll Beach. Mhairi & friend were out, ahead of me as usual, lol. Nice workout on the way back up swimming into the current & chop. Duckman was saying 12.5 degrees on average.
Bit of 1-2-1 coaching with Angus Murray this evening at Coll Beach. Angus did well for his first sea swim, taking on the waves no bother. Well done man. Duckman was saying 12.5 degrees.
Great morning for a pre work swim and to start off the week. Time allowed me to get 6.2k done today. Duckman was saying an average of 12.2 degrees.
Good 4.8k swim this morning at Coll Beach. Stuart and myself swimming against the current on the way up to the other beach. We were 10 seconds per 100 metres faster on the way back. I was swimming sideways at one point. Duckman was saying 11 degrees.
A few photo's of this mornings 5k swim at Coll Beach. Thanks to Wendy, Mhairi & friend for coming along. Think Mhairi is going to get a speeding ticket one of these days for her front crawl. Duckman was saying 12.5 degrees on average
Morning Swim - 5k pre work swim this morning before work. Duckman was saying 12.1 degrees on average. Just me, Duckman, 1 seal and loads of crabs on the go.
Evening Swim - Snuck in a 3.5k skins swim this evening. Headed across to the beach on the far side for a change. Not often you get a yacht parked in your swimming pool :)Duckman was saying 13.8 degrees on average.
Flannans Mystery Swim Team (Ed, Stuart & myself) morning dooks today over in Loch a' Bhaile (Shawbost) and in the sea. Enjoying the new Zone3 Vision wetsuits & Happy Wild Swimming caps. Duckman saying 15 degrees in the loch & 12.8 degrees in the sea.

Did 4.6k swim before work this morning, was hoping for 5k but time was getting on. Angus, Mhairi & Helen were blasting ahead of me, the old plodder, lol. Bumpy conditions, 10 minutes faster on the way back. Duckman saying 12 degrees average.
Few photo's of this mornings skins swim at Coll Beach. No bad conditions. Mark & Mhairi were zooming ahead of me :) Duckman was saying an average of 11.9 degress on average.
Pre work 5k swim this morning at Coll Beach. Good way to start off the week. Calm seas for a change too. Duckman was saying a mind altering 12.5 degrees. Bumped into Angus at the end.
Adventure swim from Mealista to Mealista Island. Choppy conditions but good fun all the same. Thanks to Angus for paddling beside Stuart & myself. Beautiful island and we will be back again.
Fun in the waves this morning before work with a hard going 5k swim. Duckman was saying an average of 11.8 degrees.
Bonkers allover the place 5k swim this morning, whilst wearing in the new zone3 wetsuit, should take another 2-3 swims before it's flexi enough. Duckman was saying 10.1 degrees average.
Tide was in, so that was a bonus. Had the wetsuit on today, but due to strong currents it took me 7 minutes longer (on both laps) on the way back. Still, it's only hand over head and good experience too. Duckman was saying an average of 11.8 degrees.
Fab 5k skins swim this morning before work. Sea was flat calm, like a millpond. Love looking down at the sun glancing through the water as I'm swimming. Saw 1 seal up at the river. Duckman was saying an average of 11.8 degrees.
Great morning for some Tri Club sea swim training at Coll Beach today. Thanks to Ann, Elspeth, Laura, Craig & Angus for coming along, hope you all enjoyed it, with a swim to the river & back. Duckman was saying an average of 11.1 degrees
Friday morning 5k pre work skins swim at Coll Beach. Conditions were good, really enjoyed it. Came it a bit close on the last lap and was mostly banging my hands of the bottom, when trying to pull a stroke. Duckman was saying an average of 11.8 degrees.
