Did you swim? Not far from there...
No, but I did test the water at a lake and it's not that cold actually :) quite surprised given the lakes were still frozen in April!
The lakes will be great. This is the time you need to "shed your winter coat" or swim in natural water... It's Finland's 100th birthday this year, and the challenge is to swim in 100 different bits of Finnish water..... sea, lake, pond, stream, marsh, it all counts!
Haha sounds good! I think 100 will be a struggle though if marshes count then maybe doable.. Will have to take all the marsh routes in the forest races this weekend!
