Cliché I know, but I just had to do it. Anyway, That has been what this winter has been about. Weekend trips to Donner Lake in Truckee, CA to train for my Ice mile attempt. I have the ok from the Doc and the EKG that says my heart is fine so we did the qualifier in 5.5C on December 15, 2018. I swam over 1,000 meters and felt great. We had a good safety plan in place and everything went off without any issues. Amy is even swimming up to 10 minutes this winter, Maybe she will give it a go next year. We had the Ice mile attempt planned for December 23, but the water was just shy of being cold enough at 5.1C. We did some training swims and just enjoyed a white Christmas in this beautiful location. We have set up a new date of January 26th and I will continue to train until then. New Years Eve weekend I am working on reaching a swimming milestone for the end of the year and I will update with a new post later.
