  • Hi Mike, I know this video is old and this will most likely get buried but I just wanted to say that last year, when I was 10, I swam 1.1 miles in open water with no wetsuit, just trunks, hat and goggles . It was about 12-13°c, maybe even a bit colder, I swam the entirity of the distance in an even better time than expected. I truly understand the feeling of elation you felt when you had finished it, I have done it a few more times this year. I love your channel, thanks for the inspiration, I remember watching this last year when I was acclimatising (for about a year at that time) I had not attempted the swim yet. I was ridiculously nervous but one day, myself and my dad did it. We have done it a few more times now and I must say I'm really enjoying it. Thanks from Ireland🇨🇮 🇨🇮 🇨🇮🍀🍀👍👍👍

  • Great accomplishment! I used to do triathlons when I was your age (decades ago). We always wore wet-suits in cold water because the calories would just leach out of us. And to make it to the end (of the 3 events) we needed all the calories we had stored! Anyhow, nice swim. And a pretty good time for an open mile swim! My best time for a 1500 meters was ~22 minutes in a 50 meter pool. On Saturdays we would run 12 miles in the morning and swim 2 miles in the afternoon as part of our training. Those were the days.
