This is a week late!
Went to the GSL after work. Took a temp reading and it was 60.2 degrees. Beautiful. By next week it will be below 60!! I got in and the nerve between my eyes stung for a bit and I was without a swim cap. My head hurt for the first few minutes. I left the marina and headed to the first buoy. I did not have a cap on, my SSD, or any feeds so I just turned around and swam back in. I haven't been swimming at ALL the past few weeks so I took it easy. I only care about going out each week and getting myself used to the cold all over again. I'm off to a good start. Still refuse to take hot showers. I seriously hate them now. I did have to put really hot water on my left shoulder last week because I strained a muscle. Still hurts.
This is the beginning of my weekly trips out there.
500 yards OW....I guess!
