Everybody’s body is different

…and not only that, it is different on different days – very confusing. This comes about because one of our lovely group said she felt colder today than last weekend even though there was less of a wind chill factor and the sea was more or less the same temperature. This happens to everyone and can be caused by so many factors. think of your body as that of an athlete – and no I am not being facetious – think about the occasions when they have changed one small thing, maybe in their diet or the way they place their feet – it can be the difference between setting records and coming last. It is the same for anyone, have you had a good week or been stressed? Have you resorted to a less than healthy diet? Are you at the beginning/end of a cold, tired – ALL of these can make a difference. The main thing is LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, don’t stay in for too long, just love the moments, always make enjoyment the aim and know that there will, more than likely, be another time to throw yourself in the icy waters with alacrity and aplomb 😊
