Lovely day for a swim

Lovely sunny day: so I grabbed my wetsuit and headed over for a swim at the Riverbank. The water temperature is up to 11°C (from 7.5°C a couple of weeks ago). There were people there this time, so it made the swim much more enjoyable, and longer. I need to find my new swimming cap though, the cold water on my head doing the crawl was a bit uncomfortable. Lazed in the sun for a bit, but had to cut this short for a generous post-swim lunch.

  • Had my first swim of the season in the Cam: the new wetsuit kept me toasty. #
  • Bit dissapointed with the asparagus from the market—probably forced and a bit lacking in flavour. But, plenty more to come I hope. #
