Heating up the Body for a Swim in Ice Cold Waters

I went for a swim this morning to wake our body up before teaching kids online at noon.

I swim to supercharge our brain and wake up our body so I can be alert for these little monsters full of energy.

It’s amazing how much energy kids have compared to how little the two of us adults have left in the tank. Before I jump in the cold waters, I take a fast run for a few minutes with a heavy coat on so I get our body temperature up genuinely high, it makes the cold plunge more tolerable. The cold water works well! As soon as I finish our cold swim I put on our warm clothes and run over to this diner to rest in front of their furnace. They have a wood burning furnace along with central heat and air to keep the big place nice and warm for us customers. I stayed in the water for 15 minutes the other day and ended up shivering for about two hours in our house. I enjoy doing several minutes in the cold water then come to the condo and heat up our body so I am covered in sweat; My trusty section gas furnace and a nice gentle hot water bath for our feet heats me up quite suddenly and comfortably. One other way to get warm suddenly after the cold swim is to teach a 5 year aged kid online for 25 minutes. I know sitting behind of a warm furnace would be much easier however it most likely isn’t as much fun.
