7:30 am. met willie at j.lane for a 5.5 mile uphill ride to the lake that will remain nameless. air temp was about 40 degrees when we started to ride. my legs felt tight and i thought i might have to walk up cardiac hill for the first time in 20 years...i didn't. when we arrived at the lake, the sun was upon it and except for my hands and feet, i was warm from the ride. the 64 degree water felt warming to my feet as i entered, but the dive in was a bit bracing...no bother. willie and i soon fell into pace chasing our shadows as the sun was behind us. the water was a few degrees cooler at the far end where the lake turns shallow, and the usual warmth reflecting from the rocks was absent. we paused only briefly before heading back. 2.5 miles of h2o and now its all downhill to the cars...brrrrr.
