A sixty length week, something I haven't managed since the first week last November. The water was 9°C then and now it's around 6°C, strange how it's easier to swim as the temperature goes up rather than down.
Another guess who of the day. On the right of this image you can see tanned David riding his bike on water!
Not the brilliant sunshine we've had most of the week but it was mild, I hope I have many more sixty length weeks to come.
The pool hasn't warmed up that much despite the good weather and longer sunlight hours, it's around 6°C. I swam my twelve lengths on my own, the light gradually creeping across the bottom of the lido as the time passed.
Another guess who, this one isn't so Tricky or is it?
You never know how these half images will come out, doesn't the water look tempting?
A rare glimpse into the sauna. Elizabeth took this picture while a dozen people inside shouted 'Door!' due to the cold coming in. The camera steamed up but you can see my swimming buddies Richard and Alfonso.
More atristry from Elizabeth, I'm not sure whose kit this is? It was bright and clear but the frost was heavier than yesterday and the water felt a little cooler.
I did a twelve length swim again, eight with Richard and the four with Alfonso (who went on to do six). It was strange changing pace mid swim, Alfonso was going much faster and it was hard to keep up for those last four.
Not so many pictures today, I was too busy swimming.A beautiful start to the day, bright sunlight dancing through the water, the air a little cooler than yesterday but I could feel the strength of the sun.
I wasn't sure how far I would go, could I top yesterdays ten? of course I could! My first full kilometre of the year. David confirmed the temperature as just about 6°C.
The sun had bought lots of swimmers out, I caught this snap of Elizabeth before I left, I don't think she saw me take it.
