Ocean Training: It’s Cold Out There

With water temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 50s, we ventured back into the Pacific this weekend. Saturday the listed water temperature was 54 degrees. Sunday it edged up to 55-58 degrees — but there were patches of really cold water out there along the way. By Monday, the water temperature was 59 (according to one lifeguard), but I doubt that reading. Plus, the air temperature in the 60s and winds made for choppy conditions. Heading south from Newport was a real struggle. Every time I train in the ocean it reminds me: pool swimming is easy.
