While the lake has not yet turned over, it’s definitely heating up. The longer days and increased levels of sunshine are slowly drawing Lake Michigan out of its long winter nap.
Dave and I got in a quick but very intense 1/2 mile late this morning. The chops were quite heavy, but we decided to give it a shot since the weather conditions were ideal. Believe it or not, all that sunshine makes a HUGE difference during the swim in helping you retain heat. If it had been overcast, I doubt we would have gone through with the swim.
Here’s a pic and a video clip of today’s shenanigans:
