We got an unexpected bonus this morning with the lake coming within striking distance of 40F again (38.9F in swim). While not much of a bump from last week, it was still a welcome change from the 30F air temp!
I went with a fullsuit this time and was quite comfortable in the lake, with the exception of the previously cited leak in my left glove which once again froze my hand. However, I was still able to get in 1/2 mile without any difficulties. Plus, I must be almost acclimated to the cold as I didn’t experience any afterdrop this time.
This was our last official autumn meetup given the upcoming winter solstice on Tuesday. So here’s looking forward to another amazing winter swimming season!
