… okay, when I said the water was 70F on Tuesday night… it really was… however… when I went down for a longer swim on Wednesday night… ummm… well, it was a smidge chillier. Dylan launched the kayak, Maisey, Jill and I were all ready to go… and we dipped our toes in… yikes… definitely not 70F. Apparently Lake O decided to adjust the thermostat overnight without checking with me first… it was 53F. Jill and Maisey made a dash out 10 meters to touch the kayak and back… and that was about it. I took a few minutes to psyche myself up and ended up going for about 1km or so. It was cold… but it actually wasn’t too bad. I wasn’t even shaking when I got out, so it’s not that cold.
In case you were debating not coming… come. I wasn’t in a wetsuit, you’ll be fine in a wetsuit! Really. Besides, it appears that it has warmed up a little and may be a comfortable 60F anyway… but you never know what you’re going to get… welcome to open water swimming in Lake O!
So, the long and short of it is… we’re still on for the first LOST swim of the year on Saturday at 8:00… see you there!
PS. get there a bit early, so we can be in the water at 8:00!
