Nice swim at Tolsta Head (Giordail) beach this morning with Ally, Susan, Louise and Nikki. So much good swimming to be had here. Today we kept it to round the sea stacks and back to the pier. Duckman was saying 7.2 degrees average.
Bit of a current going on this morning at Coll Beach but was still good to slog it out on the way up as was easier on the way back. Duckman was saying 7.6 degrees average. 2.5k @ 54 mins
Bit of an overcast morning today but it was still good to get out for a lap of Coll Beach. Looking forward to the clocks changing so can get out earlier. Duckman was saying 6.7 degrees average. 2.6km @ 50 minutes.
