This one was for the Write-Off section.

One day after the Sandycove Island swim i entered the 5K swim that was held as part of the Camlough Lake Water Festival just beside Newry in Northern Ireland.

Camlough Lake (from Irish: Camloch meaning “crooked lake”) is just made for open water swimming. A beautiful scenery together with perfect water conditions. Not perfect for me this sunday.

After the Muckross Lake 5K i wanted to lower my PB over the distance. I failed pretty badly. Never got my head right and never found my rhythm. The rest was pure survival and frustration.

It was just not meant to be at this day.
