Cold Water - November 2023 - ISSUE #79
Many swimmers cannot wait for winter swimming season to arrive. As soon as September rolls around there is talk of ice swimming, neoprene accessories and then there is the undecided dance of those who haven’t yet swam through winter. Whatever kind of winter swimmer you are, or if you are yet to become one, this month’s issue is designed to inspire and support.
Rowan Clarke explores ice baths and finds out if they aid your swimming; Elaine K Howley dives into the science behind cold water swimming; and we investigate what it takes to swim an ice mile. In gear we test neoprene accessories and we travel to the Lake District and Ireland to inspire 2024 swim trips.
Plus, get the festive season all wrapped up with our Christmas Gift Guide!
Plus all the regulars, including health news, outdoor swimming news, training, swim locations, technique, travel, event listings, gear news and kit reviews.
