Running in the City2Surf this weekend?
The weather is looking superb, with a high of 21 degrees and no rain forecast for Sunday’s race.
When you’ve slugged it out for 14km’s from the sea of concrete in the city, to the sea of surf at Bondi, there’s nothing better than to take a dip in the ocean to cool off, recover, and wash away the hard earned sweat.

Here’s something to warm up the last couple of weeks of winter!
Due to the fantastic weather we’ve had this winter, we have scheduled spring clinics for every Saturday in October, and they’re available now for registration.
That means you can get in early and be fit and raring to go when summer rolls around.
Sea lice, the likely reason you’re itching after swimming in the ocean
The chances are it’s the result of what’s commonly referred to as ‘sea lice’.
In fact, it’s not ‘sea lice’ or ‘sea louse’ in the way fishermen might think of it. This type of sea lice/louse is a marine parasite that affect fish by feeding on the mucus, epidermal tissue, and blood of host marine fish, and actually have nothing to do with the itchy rash you’ve experienced.
The UNSW is currently conducting a study on people’s perceptions of sharks.
Amongst a range of user groups, they’re keen to understand more about ocean swimmers and our attitudes towards sharks – after all, we do spend a lot of time swimming in the open water!
Have you ever experienced swimmers ear – that pain you get in your ears after swimming?
It could’ve been from swimming so much, or the water being freezing cold, maybe the water was dodgy, or maybe your ears are just a little bit precious, whatever it was, it wasn’t nice and you definitely don’t want it to happen again, right?
Well, you’ll be happy to know there’s now a preventative treatment that isn’t having to wear earplugs!
In these cooler autumn-winter months, if you’re like me you find it harder to motivate yourself to get to the pool.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone, in fact I go through this dilemma every winter and it never gets any easier trust me.
Having just got back into the pool again after a break from summer ocean swimming, I though I’d share some of my tips for getting motivated to start winter swimming, and then to stay winter swimming!
