7 swims this week. Delighted with that. Was very bouncy this morning. Great fun, but hard to do much distance

No, Dublin Southside. Few friends got out. First time I’ve heard them say it was tough. Must of been that chilly wind

Fair play to you, life is for living and getting your dose of Vitamin Sea is an essential purpose. I got in twice myself this week but only managed a minute at a time. Its life affirming.

Well done guys water temp rising slowly here. I'm lucky I'm 3k walking distance from sea so I can do my daily swim. The walk warms me up going both ways.

Another successful week. Swam each day, increasing the time in the water each day. 16minutes last Monday, 23 minutes today. 1 more week of Freezbury.
