Well done to both of you.

My swimming is decidedly gentle and easy for now, something to do on a day off between various bike races. Not made it as far as a mile yet but may do so next week.

Brilliant,Jules!
All that swimming will come in handy for me as there is a surprise tri on Sat that I have not prepped for at all. Barely biked this year.

There was a Challenge branded tri in Iceland before Covid that happened no?

The swim was super cold, but thatโ€™s all I remember about it (goes off to Google it)

Imaginatively called Challenge Iceland:

I bet the swim wasnโ€™t really 2.4 miles as this article claimedโ€ฆ

Got something to say?

About This Thread

Thread for advice and encouragement for a 5km swim challenge, inspired by the OSW couch 2 5k swim programme: outdoorswimmingsociety.com

You don't have to do it open water and you don't have to do it by any particular date.

It's a challenge, not a race.

BTW, there is a 5k, swim badge. Just saying.
