Managed a couple of laps of Shepperton Lake today. Great venue for Open Water Swimming in SW London. A little murky perhaps but it is very nice that it has the long and short loops.

I was trying out a few new wetsuits today and I’m amazed that they improve my swimming by so much – they actually make me half decent! (Well quarter-decent). All the winter training definitely paid off and I’m obviously doing something wrong with my legs or general flatness in the water but hey, who cares?, the suit is used in the race and I’m fast in the suit.
