Had the pleasure of swimming alongside Scottish swim champion Colleen Blair this morning. This is the woman who thinks nothing of nipping out for a 'wee' 3 hour swim. Duckman was saying a tropical 12.5 degrees on average. 5k pre work swim done.
Helping test out the swimming distances over in Shawbost, for the upcoming Heb Tri 2017.
Nice morning on land but not so nice in the sea. Good in-coming tidal current and chop to contend with, but all part of the experience and learning how to deal with it. 5k Wetsuit swim. Duckman was saying 13.7 degrees on average.
Good 5k skins swim at Coll Beach this morning. Plenty of wildlife on the go and got to swim with the 2 seals pretty close. Saw Mark Doug. Duckman was saying an average of 14.1 degrees.
A few photo's from this mornings pre work 5k skins swim at Coll Beach. Duckman was saying 13.6 degrees on average. Nice to be back in more manageable temperatures
Sunday morning swim from Bosta to Little Bernera with Stuart and Ed. Glorious day for it and the sea is just amazing in the lagoon. Duckman was saying a tropical 14.6 degrees on average.
Nice wee swim at St.Agnes beach, Cornwall today. The UK really has some amazing coastline. Duckman was saying a balmy 17.3 degrees.
Great swim from Man o'War round to Durdle Door through the Jurassic arch, in Dorset. Water was so clear, a beautiful place for sure. Donna came in for a dip at durdle. Duckman was saying a toasty 17.9 degrees.
Good pre work 5k skins swim at Coll Beach this morning. Nice wee workout into the current on the way up but yeehah on the way back. Got a new Duckman, which was suspiciously saying 14.1 degrees....
Angus is away tomorrow to live&work in Skye, so we had a leaving swim this morning for him down at Coll Beach. Sea was like a millpond and duckman was saying a summertime high of 12.9 degrees.
Great way to start the week off with a pre work skins swim down at Coll Beach. Only had time for the 1 lap this morning (2.5k). Duckman was saying 11.7 degrees on average.
