March 17th : Saint Patrick's Day Swim

Alright, thought I had 3 fellow swimmers but ended up with none. Maybe the beer and cabbage soup was more appealing. There was a threat of thunderstorms but ended up being none.  Did a 10 minute dip into 39 degree water with air at around 50.  Did feel very good today.  Did four rounds to breathing with breath holds of 40, 40, 30 and 20.  I have not tried this many breath holds and have to say it was difficult holding my breath for any length of time while in the 39 degree water.  You definitely want to breath heavily.  I did breath holds of 1.10,  1.30, 1.50 and 1.55 before going in the water.   Slade did the video today:
