Just started training for triathlon swim in local Lido which is unheated. Some people swim all year round despite ridiculously cold water. I don't go in until it is 12 degrees, usually April - September.
After today's session I have felt great all day, invigorated, alive and full of endorphins.
Anyone one here swim year round in cold water? I think I could get into it.
I met a lady of 80 in there today - she goes in daily. Amazing !

I certainly don't do it every day as no opportunities but it does make you feel good. Go for it. It's very wild and natural.
