Sea swimming in January

This is not much of a post, but I just had to share this.. two days ago I mentioned in my blog that it was too cold for swimming in the sea right now, which is only natural it being January and the middle of winter etc ..,.

I spoke too soon, there are some hardier souls than me out there! The air temperature was around 16%, with a gentle breeze of around 15-20km. While I didn’t feel any need to rush in and join them, I made a mental note to ensure I get my wetsuit ready and hopefully should be splashing about in The Med very soon.

As my cold has been improving, I got out and managed a short ride outside of just over an hour in the afternoon, was along a rolling course and to be honest I really felt the effort on the way back, another sign of how far I have regressed. I also managed a short 5k run and today will cycle to the local pool (about 8k away, up towards the mountains), and try to get a gentle 60 mins swim done, which hopefully will set me up to start back on a proper training schedule next week.

I’m looking forward to putting some good KMs on the road, to dropping some unwanted KGs from my waist and TRI-ing that little bit harder to be ready for the race season.
