Freshwater Swimming For Fitness

Do You Swim For Fitness in Freshwater?


This photo of a swimmer getting an early morning workout in London's Hyde Park makes me want to jump into a freshwater lake. Swimmers have been taking the plunge in the park's Serpentine Lake for more than 140 years. Do you ever swim for fitness in freshwater, such as a lake or (stretching the definition of "freshwater" ) a dumpster pool? Do these photos make you want to try it?

I do swim in OW, but it's not all fresh water! The Bay is brackish, and my last OWS (for the Ironman) was in the Carribean Sea (salt).
