Cottmiler has done it again!

Swum the Cottesloe Classic Mile today here in Perth on a lovely sunny day.

The sea was smooth to start with but got a bit choppy as time went on. On the out lap, was I glad to reach the furthermost yellow buoy! Then head to shore for a bit, turn right at the buoy and “race” to the finish.

I took over 50 kms of sea and pool training over the last 6 weeks to feel fit enough.

It was nice to see that Paul Newsome of SwimSmooth raced the Cottesloe to Swanbourne 2 km swim today in 25:45 time. This was the swim I did some years and he was there at the finish line to cheer me on and inspire me.

He had a horrendous 2019 with injury and family problems as he explained in a recent podcast.

In 10 days time we hope to see him at Claremont Pool!

Meanwhile I am looking at a couple more sea swims that I might be able to have a go at whilst in Perth.

Hi Cott, nice to hear you're back in Perth again and enjoying some OWS.

I've only done a few ows events this season, but am down at Coogee beach every Sat morning @ 8:00am.

Events so far, Rottnest Swim Thru 1.6km in a very slow 30:05 but in very choppy conditions.
Christmas 10km at Coogee in 3:19:58 pb, Swim Thru Perth 3.5km in 1:07:43 again very choppy
Busselton Jetty 3.6km in a pb 1:01:03 in calm conditions and gradually getting towards a sub 1hr one day hopefully.

701,620 metres for 2019, a lot less and a lot slower than nc! Wink

Apparently my wife has decided that we are doing a duo to Rotto next year, so I'd better keep on swimming.
