Dart 10K 2013

Tomorrow is the Dart 10K again.  A week or two earlier than last year, in the hope that the water might be a little warmer than last, when a lot of people were pulled in the first, coldest, third of the swim.  It will be interesting to see just how warm it is this year, as I am non-wetsuit this time.  I spent 45 minutes in the River Cam last night which has gone down to 14C from 17C only 10 days or so ago, and that was great.  I am hoping that the Dart is not at the 11C it was reputed to be last year, but if it is, then I will just have to get on with it!

Last year I wasn’t that impressed with the feed (small cups of Lucozade and a few jelly babies),  so this year I will just steam on through without stopping.  I am sure I can manage 2.5 hours without food so long as I am adequately carbed and hydrated……
