Swim around Key West Training Plan and Feasability

marathonswimmers.org - Sat, 17/02/2018 - 16:19

Hello Forum- I am getting ready for the Key West swim this year in 2018. Don't want to re-create the forum posts here, but would like to know how it went for those swimmers who prepared and swam KW.

How many yds./week did you swim at the end of your training plan?

How did you manage your hydration during the swim?

Where did you get a current to push(which leg) and where did you get a current pull?

What surprise you during the swim? Good and Bad?

Best Waterproof Sunscreen / Sunblock for Swimming?

marathonswimmers.org - Fri, 16/02/2018 - 07:33

Keep an eye on the expiry date. I have used Sol Rx for the last four years on my swims and it has served well even for twelve hours. However the same bottle I used for that twelve swim I used again for five swim in 12 January 2018. The expiry date was 31 January 2018. I was very burnt at the end of the swim, luckily we start ed at 8am. I will now subtract three months off to be safe.

Swim to Tasmania

marathonswimmers.org - Fri, 16/02/2018 - 02:04

Now that an open water swimmer has done a true 100+ miles unassisted (equipment or currents), I'm waiting for someone to seriously think about the Bass Strait. Forget Cuba/Florida, this would really be off the wall!

Best I can tell, mainland Tasmania to mainland Victoria (excluding offshore islands) is an even 200 km / 124 miles. Legendarily gnarly conditions.

Historical footnote: Tammy Van Wisse did part of the Bass Strait - King Island TAS to Apollo Bay VIC (95 km) in a wetsuit in 1996.

I do not know about currents, but given TVW did her 95km (in a wetsuit) in 18 hours (5.3 kph), I assume there are some to be taken advantage of.

Swim Ocean City 2018

marathonswimmers.org - Thu, 15/02/2018 - 20:58

The nine mile Swim Ocean City event will take place July 21, 2018. This is a charity event but still very reasonable for a nine mile ocean swim. You swim the length of Ocean City, MD parallel to shore so it is a great swim for those who don't like being too far from land. It has been easy some years and much harder others depending on the currents.

The Race Director @Corey puts countless hours into the event to raise funds to help those who have suffered traumatic brain injury like himself. His passion is evident throughout the event. His volunteers and the Beach Patrol all get behind this to make it a safe and enjoyable event.

We recently lost one swim in that area and I would hate to see us lose another due to lack of participation. Please consider signing up if you are looking for a challenging swim that also helps others.

I have participated in the event several times and will be back this year. Please feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions or post here for general questions. I may be able to help with transportation from BWI if you fly in Friday morning and leave early afternoon Sunday.

Save $30 with code EARLY2018 for next few sign ups. https://www.active.com/ocean-city-md/water-sports/swimming/ocean-games-swim-ocean-city-2018?int=

6# IJ-Swim, Amsterdam

Netherlands Open Water Web - Thu, 15/02/2018 - 15:36
Datum: zondag, 9 september, 2018 (Hele dag)

http://ijswim.nl

IJ-SWIM is een open water zwemwedstrijd waarbij je als volwassenen: 2000, 3000, 4000 meter kan doen. De Kids-SWIM 500 is meter.

Deze afstanden zijn iets langer dan vorig jaar (toen 1800, 2800 of 3800 meter en KIDS van 250 meter).

Je zwemt natuurlijk primair als sportieve prestatie en tegelijkertijd wordt je prestatie gemeten met een tijdregistratie. Meedoen is immers belangrijker dan winnen.

Training plan for Chesapeake Bay Swim

marathonswimmers.org - Thu, 15/02/2018 - 14:33

I won the lottery! Sort of...

I entered and was selected for the Chesapeake Bay swim in June. I live in Chicago.

I have done quite a bit of open water swimming. Big Shoulders 6X, 3 Half IMs, etc....

I have already done my qualifying swim for Chesapeake (3 miles in the pool option) and I am set to go.

I am swimming on my own regularly but would appreciate any training plan, tips, etc... someone who has done this swim can give me. I am not using a coach and swimming without a masters program at the local community center.

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Can't help but doubt some of the times/distances he talks about in some of the videos. But anyone wanting to swim 40KM attached to a tree is clearly going above and beyond!

California Triple Crown of Marathon Swimming

marathonswimmers.org - Tue, 13/02/2018 - 14:37

On September 25, Ryan Utsumi of Burlingame, Calif. became the sixth to complete the California Triple. Even more impressive, he completed all three swims in 67 days.

  • Lake Tahoe - 10 hr 36 min on 20 July
  • Santa Barbara Channel (Anacapa to mainland) - 5 hr 29 min on 21 August
  • Catalina - 11 hr 6 min on 25 September

On October 28, Ken Mignosa of Santa Clara, Calif. became the seventh.

  • Lake Tahoe - 14 hr 38 min on 12 July
  • Catalina - 17 hr 18 min on 21 September
  • Santa Barbara Channel (mainland to Anacapa) - 9 hr 3 min on 28 October

The CTC list will likely eclipse 10 swimmers by the end of this year. If you're a California local, this is a world-class challenge in your backyard. If you're elsewhere, maybe you've already done Catalina and are looking for an excuse to return.

For Santa Barbara Channel swims, see santabarbarachannelswim.org or feel free to reach out to me.

For Lake Tahoe swims, Tom Linthicum has piloted many across the lake in the past few years. Alternatively, Pacific Open Water Swim Co. is a new option for Tahoe as well as Anacapa, and swims in SF Bay - see http://www.pacificswim.co/tahoe-swims/

Weekly training volume for completing marathon swims?

marathonswimmers.org - Mon, 12/02/2018 - 21:26

I've been reading this thread about weekly distances and it leaves me with a question. What kind of sets are most beneficial? My tendency is to do longer distance sets, but I see some people do sets of 100's in some of the posted workouts. Currently, I'm doing things like a 1000 or 1600 pace swim, then a set like: 800 sw, 200 pull, 600 sw, 400 pull, 400 sw, 600 pull. (Swim for pace, pull for technique. Still working on high elbows, balance and hand placement.) Some days I throw in a sprint workout which to the casual observer doesn't look a whole lot different from my all day pace. 10x200, leave on the 3:00 for example. Mainly, I'm doing longer pacing type swims to build my base and not really working on speed. If I go out and do a 100, I still can give a good accounting of myself, but that's never been my strength.

I'm doing 4500 a day right now and will up that to 5000 next week. I think I'd like to hold my workouts at that level. But I'm open to suggestions. When I'm back in the lake, I'll do a similar distance, just not as pool sets. I'm planning on racing a 5K, swimming some 10K's and attempting something longer than a 10K toward the end of summer. (~30K) And yes, I did read @evmo 's posting on the general plan. I will definitely do the longer 1/2 distance and 3/4 distance training swims.
