Stephen's Ritual

I arrived early at the pool this morning .. and what a frosty morning it was! After signing in I caught up with Stephen and he let me into his ritual at the Tooting Bec Lido.

After putting his blanket down, Stephen summoned up all his courage ( he needed an extra potion today with the water temperature being at 5 Celsius!) and dived in the deep end of the pool

The water looks and feels heavy

Wendy looking rather pink (and frozen) after her time in the pool - she is weaning herself off from wearing gloves ... in time for taking part in the Cold Water Championships which will take place at the Tooting Bec Lido on January 22nd 2011

  1. Why wean yourself off wearing gloves? Are there rules about gloves at the Cold Water Championships?
