I'm checking the thermometer, is it it a trick? The water refuses to budge hovering around that 11ºC mark. In someways I should be glad, I can still swim twenty two lengths without any discomfort but on a dull wet morning the sauna would be nice too.
The water was quite full today, perhaps we're all trying to get to Latvia? I even had a little collision, my fault. I caught the feet of a woman swimming in front of me, I wasn't looking and although I'd seen her turn I hadn't judged the speed differential very well. Again I had been loking to do eighteen but ended up at twenty two. I spoke to Pip afterwards who had done twenty two yesterday, the difference being with stopping and chatting he'd been in the water about 75 minutes! more than twice as long as me.
