Eleventh of the eleventh, 2011. Guess what the water temperature is? Yep, 10.5ºC or 51ºF (verified by David). It's gone down just a little bit, a misty murky morning didn't help, the water looked cold. Turns out it was rather misty under the water too, not sure why it's gone so cloudy?
I set off on my swim just as Stephanie was turning. She's in training for a channel swim next summer and while all around her a dropping their distance she's upping hers. Stephanie did a massive thirty six lengths this morning which is impressive indeed. I managed eighteen, I thought about doing a couple more but decided I'd rather get out, I'm glad I'm still at the mile mark this late in the year.
