(Real) Swim Report – April 1, 2017 – Happy April!

After a tempestuous beginning, Spring 2017 calmed down a bit on Saturday and finally gave us a great morning!

Although the air was still a tad nippy at 38F, the lake came in at a wondrous 41.9F. Plus we had plenty of very intense sunshine that not only helped stave off the chill during the swim but also greatly diminished the dreaded afterdrop.

As with last week, I went with my truncated gear setup. But this time I was able to get in a full 1/2 mile despite some slight but annoying swells.

Bottom line, whether you swam in the lake or just got out to the lakefront, it was a perfect way to start off a new month!
