Some of them may already enter competitions then. T30 is a good idea, I have dabbled with the idea but not got round to doing it. It is good to have a goal, hope it goes well.

Maybe you could persuade some of your fellow swimmers to do it, it is more fun if there are people you know at the meet. Good luck.

How lovely to be able to be able to change in your house. Still a good idea to know how to deal with cold though.

That lone swimmer site looks interesting Salvo, I will certainly have a read of it.

It's a personal comfort thing. Many people swim all year round without a wetsuit, a lot depends on physiology, how much cold you can put up with and what you prefer. Even wearing a wetsuit you will...

It's hard to imagine that an elite female swimmer would be in that 30% group as even elite swimmers tend to be quite low in body fat.

Swimming 2 km in open water is much nicer than swimming in a pool, in fact the more open water swimming one does the less pool swimming one wants to do.

They call them latex hats in swim shops and they are the ones they normally give out at events. I can't say if that is what they are really made of but that is the implication.

Yes the heart rate max formula is rubbish.
See this www.ntnu.edu/cerg/hrmax-info

Hi Charles,

I think a table of table of paces per gender/age is a really good idea, good luck with it, I imagine you will need a lot of data.
