    Ok let's be honest Trip, I didn't beat you nearly as bad as Ali is beating on Foreman.

    I wouldn't last a half hour in water below 70. I can't believe you swam in 57 degree water. We start waterskiing in water that cold, but with drysuits ;-)

    We don't have to worry about cooling our pools down here -- obviously a very different climate.
    to actually “train” with some semblance of quality I need water to be close to or above 70. Above 60 I can just grind out yardage but there will be no speed at all. As for when it was 57, that was just survive to say I did it. Wouldn’t recommend anyone try to swim in water that cold without protection (I was in just a speedo). It took me about 2 hours to get my body temp back to normal.

    Little Rock Racquet Club (you don't use my handy dandy glossary on the right side of my blog? :P )

    And no, they do not heat the LCM pool. Just the SCY one. LCM one actually has a "chiller"/aerator to cool it down, because come mid-June, without it, the Arkansas heat just turns it into a bathtub.

    The temperature fluctuates with the weather for a while until June when it stabilizes. We had some cool nights, and some rain/overcast days, which caused the temp to drop a bunch. Probably will be back down to mid 60s by Monday after our weekend of storms, and back up to mid 70s by Friday or Saturday after next week's gorgeous weather forecast.

    Also I swam in the pool when it was 57 back in early March, so 68 feels great

    No. They did them race pace-ish.

    Sounds like you got the storm that hit here yesterday morning. It was just misting when I started swimming, then when I got out of the lake it was a steady drizzle (I didn't even notice it while swimming). On the drive home the rain intensified, a few lightning strikes as I got closer, then it went crazy after I got home. Thankfully I wasn't out in the middle of the lake, I have no idea what I'd do.

    was that the top 6-8 inches though, or down in the 3-4 foot range?

    I do not use a wetsuit. I use my hot pink and purple and orange speedo brief. It's "hot."
