Winter open water swimming: it's not for everyone, especially in skins. Last year, I was persuaded to try it by a friend and I fell in love. I have never got out the water feeling so alive and invigorated. I got as far as completing my Ice Mile (a mile of swimming in sub 5 degree water in a costume, swim hat and goggles) qualifier but never completed the actual event as life took over. So this season, I'm determined to complete it. Got to the lake the morning, ditched the suit and ploughed on with just over 1700m in the lake. Can't beat the high once in the water ๐Ÿ’œ
