Human Race 3k Open Water Swim at Poole Dorset

I competed in the Human Race 3k Open Water Swim at Poole Dorset. I would like to say that it was very rough but despite that I battled through and had a fantastic time. It was like a mill pond a fantastic opportunity for a good time.
Having made the decision to go out fast I received the inevitable kick in the head and the odd elbow in the ribs. It paid dividends though as once the super fast group shot off I had a bit of open water - great. 4 laps 750m per lap.
Good day had by all and came in with a 52minute 18 second time 4th in age category and 38th overall. Off to Italy this weekend for part of the Swim The Island Series this time distance will be a bigger test at 6k. I am sure the pizza and Chianti will taste especially good !
