Training for Ironman Lake Placid. Looking to do ~60 mins in the water. 1-2 miles. Would be good to get out 2-3 times during the week. Have never been in mid 50 degree water though - so apart from full wet suit what do we need to wear?

Good morning Mark,
I think it's great that you're training for ironman..
I just started swimming in the ocean last summer, about one mile.. Usually l swim at the ymca down brighton about 1 1/2 miles, it takes me about 35 to 40 minutes.. Swimming in the ocean is completely different than in a pool, so l don't think l am a suitable swimmer for you at this time.. hopefully after this summer or during l will be comfortable with my swimming skills in the ocean.. Looking forward to meeting all the cibbow members:)

Mark, while we do not mind if you swim in a wetsuit with us, and you would not be alone, we are mostly made up of skins (non-wetsuit) people training for marathons and/or extreme cold.  You would learn a lot about cold water acclimation by coming out during the weekend and talking to/swimming with the group, as we are very experienced in adaptation skills. You might even convince someone to come out with you during the week if you came during a weekend and demonstrated that you were able to handle water this cold--it's also a good way to find someone your pace.  If you're inexperienced in cold water, you should absolutely swim with a buddy, and be conservative in terms of distance goals until you know what you can handle.   But your probably not going to get an answer as to "gear" you should wear, because in general this group is geared towards serious open water swimming without a wetsuit.  I wear a bikini with silicone cap and earplugs, and bring hot tea:)

Patricia. It'd be an honor to swim with the group and start to learn the demands of ocean swimming in the cold. Is there a group heading out this Sunday morning? If so I'd like to join in. Thanks. Mark

I will be swimming with another member on Friday at 11am if you're still interested. We're slow swimmers though!
