I wore the wetsuit again and the water was a little colder than last time. It was sunny yesterday, but today it was overcast. Today I did 8 laps (2 miles). On the last lap I wanted to give the boys a challenge and yelled out that if they could paddle faster than me on the last lap they'd each get a dollar. They didn't paddle the entire length, but I didn't care, I just wanted them to go fast. So I gave them each a dollar afterwards. Did the 8 laps in just under an hour.
Even less of an issue with the cold after getting out. Was back to normal by the time I got to the Trading Post at the lodge.
I'm really going to need to get some cold water training to get acclimatized to cold water. Next week I'll be doing 10K with John and Craig at Pineview. I'm looking forward to it.
