Swimming 36:00  1.0 km (36:00 / km)
News of the day is that the changeroom renovations at Fitzroy are finally completed (only three months late), so we're no longer operating out of tin sheds. (The tin sheds did have decent hot water, most of the time).
The water temperature was possibly the lowest on record in my experience here: 26.1 (nothing to worry me too much). Record low temperatures were somewhat on my mind this morning after the news from Argentina, where Bariloche got down to -25.4, the small matter of 4.3 degrees below its previous low (showing what can happen when everything comes together and you get clear skies and light winds over a fresh snow cover - a combination you don't see often in Patagonia, especially the light-winds bit). This gave me plenty of excuses for me to make my colleagues envious - except the one who's also been there - with tales of a place famed for its scenery, its chocolate and its ice cream.
The swim itself was a bit uneven, but came good in the end.
