2-Dec-2012 Bondi to Bronte

Sunday 2 December 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

This was about my 4th swim at the annual Bondi to Bronte and certainly one of the highlights of my yearly calendar. It’s about 2.3km-2.4km depending on conditions and the exact line you swim.

The conditions were very rough this year and I finished 923rd from 1319 – 69% down the field which is about average for me in 52min 47secs (fastest was 27.26 and the slowest 1.42.6). I enjoyed the swim – I am a bit like how I am when running races : the worse the conditions, then the better I go. Many times you could barely even see the buoys it was so rough (and they are BIG).

Afterwards I walked back to Bondi along the coast path, had some vietnamese rice paper rolls and a coffee for lunch. A quick look at the shops and the market then home by approx mid-afternoon.
