Default 13 KM Open water sea swim

Hi all,
I'm new to the forum and have been practicing TI for a few months. Last summer I took part in an 8KM swim which I enjoyed and this year I've entered a 13Km swim with some cross-tide. I'm currently reasonably fit but with 4-months to the event need a focused plan to get me comfortably over the line. Can anyone recommend one. I'm based in Ireland and cant get into the sea reasonably until May.

All suggestions appreciated - R

That's a great challenge. Since you've already done 8K and that's over 90 minutes of exercise then I would view the 13K as an extension of the same strategy.

For a week by week training plan it might be worth looking at a runner's schedule and adjusting by dividing the distances by 3. This one came up when I googled and at a quick glance seems ok.

Default Help with marathon training

Hello! I am glad someone posted about marathon training, as it is something I have been thinking about transitioning to. Some great advice in here, and I wanted to share what I found, which has been really helpful! This is a great free marathon training schedule and an accompanying 9-part video course http://runnersconnect.net/marathon-training-schedule/. What I liked about this plan over others is that the training plan is customizable to your race date and has exact times based on your fitness and goals. Plus, the video guide really helped explain the philosophy and answers a lot of questions I had. Had me feeling very confident in the plan. Hope this helps others too!

What about The Bondi to Bronte? Now in it's 13th year, attracting 2000+ swimmers every year. The course is a wonderful 2.2-2.4km journey swim from the iconic Bondi Beach to the beautiful Bronte Beach. It is a bucket list swim attracting swimmers from all over the world!
This year we are adding an adults 800m Bronte Bay swim and the Junior Ocean Swim returns for 8-13's over 400m & 800m!
