Swim Report – April 4, 2015 – Holy Saturday

Mike, Marton, Jason and I met out at L1 at 6:30am – just in time for a spectacular sunrise. The air temperature was a bit crisp at 35F, but the lake came in at 44.4F. We also had some medium size swells, but nothing too bothersome.

Given the abundant sunshine and calm winds, I decided to do a half mile in just the hood, gloves, foot covers, and neoprene shorts. I jogged down to Oak Street Beach first where I had to navigate some surprisingly vigorous surf. But once I got past that, it was a very smooth swim back to L1.

The lake, while still a bit chilly, didn’t have that painful bite to it that was present the last couple of weeks. So it looks like the Spring Turnover is finally arriving!
