56 degrees today

I actually swam with a wetsuit and cap today. I borrowed Sandy’s wetsuit.

I don’t like the idea, didn’t particularly like the feel (though I don’t thinks this armless, loose, heavy wetsuit added floatation or caused compression), but I guess it kept me somewhat warmer. Though, I’m not sure. I’ve swum in 56 degree water many times before and this felt similar.

My face stung and my arms were very cold for a minute or two, then I was fine. I guess my core may have been warmer when I got out, but the swim didn’t feel very different to me.

I don’t know how much colder the lake is going to get, but if I can find a way to swim there a few days per week in the winter, I’m up for giving it a go.
