With just over a week to go before the Great Scottish Swim event at Loch Lomond I was just wondering if anyone had entered?
With five different category length swims - half mile, 1 mile, 2 miles, 5k & 10k it will be quite a spectacle.
Let me know the reason you entered (because you love open water water swims or is it a new challenge?) and maybe share some of your training tips. Maybe open water swimming is something you fancy trying but not sure where to go or who to speak to? This event (and thread) would be the perfect place to ask questions to get you started.
I will be attending the event and hope to get some tips from swimmers - seasoned and newbies, and I will share after the event too.
