I'll be swimming at White Pond (Kent/Carmel) this Saturday 6/15 at 6:00am. I thought it might be a good idea to post here if you plan on swimming there as it seems to be a popular swimming hole and folks can meet up for safety, etc. I'll post here if I'm doing so, and maybe others will too.

Happy training!

I am also on Team Bikeway and would love to try some OWS at White Pond. I used to swim at Red Wing in Hopewell but haven't renewed this year. The 15-yard pool at AllSport is getting crowded lately!

I hear you. I swim in the oversized hot tub at AS too. If you're an early bird, I'm planning to get in at white pond tomorrow then head to the bikeway group ride in wappingers.

If you are still looking for a.better pool alternative in September, check out the FISH masters group in Poughkeepsie. They are a great group with swimmers of all speeds, but a little too far north for me to swim with often.

I can't make it tomorrow. All-day lacrosse tournament. What is the water like there? I've never been.

The water is a)deep, bring a floatation device is my recommendation; b) clean, but not clear. It's one of those green water NY lakes, so don't expect to see the bottom anywhere c) full of flora and fauna. It really starts to weed up as the summer progresses. Right now its fine, just swimming through small patches of lake grass, but in a few weeks, there may be more weeds than I'm comfortable with, in which case, I'll move to the Hudson for OWS d) a popular fishing hole. fisherman and kayaks seem to start arriving at around 7am. No motorboats allowed, so not a safety issue. I personally just dont want to go flopping around scaring fish near some other dad who is trying to catch some fishies with his kids. There's enough room for everyone, about a 3,000 yard circle, but you can swim anything in between. e) near some great places to ride a bike, namely rt 301 and the various country roads that cross it.

There's no set meetup that I know of. So if you have time some other time and want to go, just post it and maybe someone else likes that time as well...

If you wanted to get in a swim Saturday morning that weekend, I'd be happy to meet up. On Sunday (Father's Day) I'll be swimming in my back yard, and by swimming, I mean floating around while the kids fetch me beers.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

While adequate protein is important in your sports diet, protein should take its place as the accompaniment to carbs (grains, fruits, vegetables) in each meal and snack.

I step gingerly into the pond. I did not know water could be that cold and not be ice. Briefly I can see the bottom and then everything is black except for my pale hands extending from my black suit.

Stroke after stroke, my pace was pulling me out into the middle of the lake quickly. The cover seemed to be getting thicker. But still in the distance, the little boathouse was my lighthouse.

Some are getting a little OWS practice in, others are strategizing, the rest are just plain scared.
