Continued SwimRun training

Nothing massively interesting to report, although pleased that I am managing to commit to weekly SwimRun sessions, which are going well.

Graeme and I generally meet each Wednesday for a 2-hour training session, typically 3 swims + 4 runs, totalling around 2-3km of swimming and 10km of running - approx. a third of of Loch Lomond event, which is approaching quite quickly. Let's hope we can both get to the start line healthy, fit and without any COVID symptoms (a lot going around at the moment).

Meanwhile, the training continues - I really need to get in a long (20km+) easy trail run with hills - possibly a run into work over Downs. Plus a long easy swim, at least 2km.

We are still pushing to see course map, leg distances but no word yet. We have been told we now have to carry a swimbuoy, to add to the many essential items.

I am resting today after yesterday's session (arms a little tired as the sea was so choppy - hard work with paddles). Tomorrow I plan a run from home. Saturday, a Club swim.

Onwards and upwards
