First lake swim of 2011

So I finally got round to pulling on my wetsuit and swimming 3 laps of Copthorne Lake.

The water was warm (18C), clear, and the sun was shining. It was 60 minutes of Open-Water Swimming at it's very best - unhurried, sunny, and not too busy.

Richard went purist and didn't wear a wetsuit, hardcore stuff given it's so early in the season.
Sadly, Craig couldn't make tonight's inaugural session, so I had to make do with occasionally swimming into Richard.

Best of all, the wind was behind us as we cycled back into Reading. A top ending to a top swim.

Yes, I understand.

Indeed, it takes a real discipline to cultivate that portly hairy milk bottle adonis look! ;-)
