We held this online session for members recently which we're now sharing out to everyone. Whether you are an experienced cold water swimmer or it is your first winter of swimming, this hour of cold water chatter with Open Water Swimming Coach and Lifeguard Jude Palmer will surely help.
About the session
Whether it be in the hills or in cold water, Jude Palmer is at her happiest when out in the great outdoors, having an adventure however big or small and with other people. Amongst other things, she is an Open Water Swimming Coach and Lifeguard and has swum in lakes, rivers, the sea and the odd puddle including over 20 long course swimruns around the world, triathlons, long distance swims (24hr Swim for Life, Windermere) but is equally happy dipping into hidden wild swims spots and enjoying being immersed in all that is open water swimming. She is endorsed by the STA to lead Cold Water Swim Sessions, works with the NHS to deliver cold water dipping on prescription and takes great delight in helping people achieve things they didn’t think they could. In this recording Jude chats to us about all things cold-water dipping. Whether you are an experienced cold water swimmer or it is your first winter of swimming, this is an hour of cold water chatter including:
The latest on why cold water is good for you
What happens to the body in cold water and why that is important to think about before you even get in
How long is long enough?
Share top tips and myth busting
What to think about when planning your swim - where, who, why, what
Along with plenty of time for questions.
