in my longest swim ever today. I got a little fatigued at the end but I completed the yardage-4500 yards. That translates into 2.56 miles to be exact. The biggest problem was boredom-I was left alone with my thoughts, which can be a good thing or can be just random flight of ideas, like it was today. It took me 1 hour and 45 long minutes.
As for the questions about water temp in Lake Coeur d' Alene: Today the water is 8 degrees Celsius. Let me see-hmmm..that is, according to my calculations, 46.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Now in my book, that is too cold for even a warming hut...However, it has been said that it can really warm up in June-up to a high temp of even 62-65 degrees which in my experience recently, is a heat wave! The water temp was 57 degrees in Lake Mead and I survived. So we will see, I am not going to stress about something I cannot control. The word is that this year there is a "late runoff" so the water may be "colder than normal". I need to get to Cochiti Lake to practice my cold water swimming..and pour ice cubes in my bath water every day..
