Well, I managed to get in 14 swims for the month of July. I could probably have fitted in a couple more but I developed a bit of a sore throat and decided it was better to be safe than sorry. I stayed inside. Besides, there were a couple of storms, and I probably couldn't have been swimming, anyway.
The last time I swam, I had been wearing my emergency swimming gear that I keep in the car, and it is very lightweight. I was so freeeeezing in the sea. The cold seemed to go right through my very flesh. And when I got home, my body was icy for hours.
Am I getting too long in the tooth for winter swimming?
