    Tips to get you cold water swimming

    Getting started with cold water swimming - By Annie Brooks (www.talesofanniebean.com )

    If you love your pool swims and enjoy those open water swims, then this winter you might be ready to take on cold water swimming! Unlike hopping into to your local heated swimming pool to run through your drills, or dipping into that beautiful lake during the summer time, cold water swimming not only challenges physically, it tests you mentally also.

    Zoggs Swim Diaries: A solo swim to France? No, it’s a huge team effort!

    The time is almost here! As Deborah waits for her channel swim to arrive she shares how she is feeling...

    As I sit here in the middle of the night, wide awake with a mixture of excitement, trepidation and some nerves that are coming and going, mainly from not knowing when I’m going to swim, rather than the swim itself, I’m reflecting on so many things. The main thing that springs to mind is the phrase ‘a solo swim’, when in fact it is far from that.
