Swim training blog in the lead up to the Big Minch Swim 2019
A wee splash about in the sea with some of the Heb Sea Swimmers ladies this morning at Gress Beach. Plenty of good sized waves. Well done to everyone as it wasn't easy going. A few seals watching us and laughing. Duckman was saying 6.5 degrees.
Polar bear swim at the Braighe this morning. Spent more time looking around the Ui Church and graveyard (http://www.uichurch.co.uk/) than swimming. It's a fascinating place and a good swim spot nearby too. Duckman was saying 5.4c, 400 metres at 8 minutes
Road trip to Hushinish for January's first polar bear challenge swim. Love swimming there, with lots of different places to swim and explore. Bit lumpy getting out but good fun. Duckman was saying 7.8 degrees. 600metres @ 15 minutes.
