First time Open Water Swimming 13/07/2014

I've just been for an epic swim! Will I say epic.. my first time in proper open water and in a wetsuit.

It wasn't great to start off with, the wet suit fitted so that was good, it felt tight in the water which wasn't normal as was wearing a swim hat it was covering my ears which I didn't like. After about 10 minutes of trying to control my breathing an getting used to being where I was, I became used to the water and then got swimming about :-)

Only slow swimming at the moment, but will work on faster as I know I can do it in the pool.
