Since last September, my swim training has been pretty reduced, but I put on some more weight, without much effort, and was happy to find that running is still possible at 85 kg (my weight of 1985, last year it was only 77 kg) – although it may be easier in winter than in scorching heat in summer, but now my first and foremost goal is the Channel – the rest will work somehow. I am trying to acclimatise better to cold water this year and plan to use the Neckar and a nearby lake quite a bit more.
Today, pool training started, with a view to participate in the 12 hour indoor swimming event in Zurich on March 1st.
That looks so cold!
Good luck with your training this year. I look forward to reading about your exploits.
But, I don’t think I’ll ever go swimming in water less that 15 degrees warm 🙂
Thanks Tejvan! I think 15 degrees is a big challenge for you already, with no insulation!
