After months and months of freezing weather it finally warmed up! Yesterday the water was 7.5ºC and I swam twelve lengths. I felt I could do more afterwards despite the luke warm sauna. A warm night and mild morning had made the water feel even warmer today. Just as I was getting in I saw Alfonso arrive, he joined me after length four and we swam at a steady pace, it's much easier with a swim buddy. Eighteen lengths and we weren't even pushing it. I hope to be taking pictures underwater again soon.
