With a flip flop on each hand and wild shreik in the air Sue leaps back into the lido for a post sauna splash. The wind was bitter with stingingly icy snow, at least in the water you were protected from the worst of it. Elizabeth and Vince cheered me on after I turned for length three. I didn't hear them, I was too busy thinking had I'd pushed it too far? Although the water didn't feel too bad my hands froze in the icy air. Four lengths then I headed for the ever popular warmth and comfort of the sauna.
David has the thermometer string around his foot, just by looking at him you can tell it's cold. Back down to 2ºC was the verdict.
