Monday we did our first open water swim of the season.
The water was actually much warmer than I thought it would be. It was also much muckier than I thought it would be. The reported water temperature was 68F, which was perfect for a wetsuit. There were a few cold pockets that we swam through and I am pretty sure those were much closer to the 55F temperature…brr 🙂
I forgot how difficult it is to get in and out of the wetsuit…I definitely have some practicing to do before my races this season.
When we get home, we always hang our wetsuits outside our back door. Sometimes when the curtains are pulled inside, I see the shadow of what appears to be a person outside our window…creepy 🙂
Have you done your first open water swim yet this season? What were the water temperatures like?
