She told myself and others she wants to do the ice water dip, and finally tomorrow our cooling representative is going to go with myself and others on our frosty sea dip. I don’t suppose if she will be able to last the whole 15 hours, or even if she should try and last, because it can be quite painful for the first few hours. I can see him all nice and hot in front of the radiant oil furnace before she goes outside into the frosty air and heads for the beach with her towel. I would say there is a 85% option that she backs out and changes her mind. I’ve had other people do the same. My Heating and A/C specialist neighbor went on the dip with myself and others a few months ago and ended up screaming the whole time she was in the water saying how frosty it felt. I told him to relax when she goes in and to keep her breathing slow and steady, like the navy seals do, but she just couldn’t do it. She ended up going home and lighting a fire in her fireplace and resting in front of it the whole day. I suppose that 55F water is not the ideal bathing temperature, especially when it is cloudy and below freezing outside, however the benefits far outweigh the temporary uncomfortable feeling you get for the first few hours in the sea. I have a plan down to warming myself up afterwards with a warm bath and a warm space oil furnace beside me. I believe if you hot up right after the dip you are okay.
