Down to the lido to swim with Sue Croft, channel aspirant, as she wanted to get a Polar Bear hat. Only to find her coming out of the pool having done it. Assisted by Kathrine, she managed to get her temperature up to a degree below normal in half an hour! Kathrine is doing some research into temperatures before and after swimming in cold water – it was 3.5C today – but her thermometer couldn’t get the after swim temperature, as it was too low.
Meanwhile Mrs Ape baked a wonderful Battenberg cake, sold CWSC raffle tickets (buy them here) and got sponsorship for her efforts to raise money for the Pickering Centre (donate here) – a voluntary run support centre for people with cancer, or recovering from cancer.
Otherwise, it was Sunday business as usual. 33 yard handicap races, cake, coffee, chat and patball.
