Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim

no comment Posted by

Have any of you guys heard of the Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim?

I had never heard of it until one of my members emailed me asking if I had been in the event.  It look amazing!!!

From what I’ve read online the course is 2.4km’s or so from one iconic Sydney beach to another.

I really haven’t and don’t spend much (any) time on that south side of Sydney (it is busy and touristy) but they are beautiful places and that swim sounds like a great excuse… and might mean that I’ll have to get some more one-on-one with the Swim Coach (click here to read about the Swim Coach).

If any of you guys have done this event let us know.  Looks like lots of speedos from some of the pics I found of the race.

Sydney Speedo Day

no comment Posted by

Yesterday turned out to be a sensational day, when I left the condo it was cold and I was regretting my decision to speedo it up but once I got in the water it wasn’t too bad.  The Charlton pool really is pretty amazing!!!

Unlike when I was in Colorado just a few weeks ago, most of the guys were wearing speedos which was great and nobody blinked and eye when I stripped down to my ADIDAS speedos.

After swimming 2kms I jumped in an Uber and headed to Bronte Beach.  I’ve heard a lot about it but never been there before and it was gorgeous.  I didn’t realise there is a pool at the south end of the beach in the rock but the ocean was a little bit cooler than the pool though.

I spent a couple of hours doing some paperwork and reading a book just hanging out in my speedos.

Great Sydney speedo day!!!

Today I’ve got a bunch of work to do, I think around lunch time I will walk over to the pool for another swim and then tomorrow I’m heading back north.

Swimming Motivation

no comment Posted by

I’m spending a couple of days down in Sydney hanging out with some mates.  A buddy is having his 30th brithday on Tuesday and invited me down for dinner with a whole bunch of people.  He suggested I come down for a few days and hang out in the big smoke which sounded like fun.

Of course I’ve spent a bunch of time in Sydney but only ever short trips so this should be fun.

Since I have the day to myself, this speedo hunk pictured below has motivated me to go to the pool for some laps – darn he is hot isn’t he?

I have swum at the Charlton Pool and I think it is just amazing.  Once I finish off some work (and it warms up a little bit) I’m going to walk over there, get some laps in then maybe figure out public transport and go down to Bronte Beach.

Now the only question is…. which speedos should I wear?  ADIDAS or AussieBum?
