Most people seem to still be on Easter break so the pool was empty when I arrived just after eight. Ice was floating on the far side but it was possible to swim lengths. The sun was bright and the water looked inviting despite the cold wind. I swam four lengths which was probably one too many, I was cold. Only Sangeeta in the sauna at first but slowly other swimmers appeared. Richard is the channel aspirant who I sometimes swim with, he hadn't been in for a week and was concerned with how cold it would be. I told him I was sure he could manage two lengths, he has very good pace. I we can swim together later in the week.
