Pond Life

There is nothing I can say about this Siberian Spring that you don’t already feel depressed about.

Yet I still ‘run’ around the concrete mud of the Heath under the grey skies and bare trees before plunging into the still wintry waters.

3 degrees.

If you need cheering up and a beautifully-written explanation of why some people do this daily, get hold of the wonderful Al Alaverez’ Pond Life,  the journal of a veteran Men’s Pond swimmer.
