The Science of Swimming

Beach: Klode
Water temp: 58, few pockets of warmer and cooler water
Waves: calm
Current: none
Water Clarity: Excellent
The Crew: Patriarch, Nahi, Linda, Mike, Capt'n
Next Swim: Thursday 6AM Klode

What a difference 12 hours can make. Unlike yesterday evening's wetsuit optional conditions swimming without them this morning would have been quite a challenge. (...the thought did cross our minds though...) Despite the cooler water temp it didn't take long for everyone to acclimate to it. Remnants of yesterday's warm water temps could still be found scattered between Klode's north beach and the rockpile....although they were few in numbers. Perhaps signs of the conveyor belt theory?

Good news is today's sweltering hot weather forecast should warm the lake surface up quite nicely. Looking forward to tomorrow's 6am swim.

Future Swim Opportunities:

Saturday: Pleasant Prairie Aquathon http://www.active.com/page/Event_Details.htm?event_id=1664503&assetId=F7FA88C1-1317-4CC0-AF2B-A6B4FA7351EB

Sunday: Klode to Big Bay Swim (...time is negotiable. Interested??? Let us know what time you'd like to start. 10am? noon?)

In modern rap language, the word, "swagger," is frequently used to describe one's way or style of walking that is a display of how "cool" or "hip" they are.

With this in mind, let it be known that Ted and Greg's swimming "swagger" is the coolest thing since early-season Lake Michigan water temperatures!!!
