The new heat sensors in the pool are being adjusted and today the water is 91 degrees. We are swimming very slowly lest we turn into soup. No high energy laps today, we are just playing at swimming. The face is the first thing to become overheated, then the chest. If I stand up (the pool is only 4 ft. deep) between laps, I can at least cool off the upper body. Just jogging up and down the length of the pool also keeps me cooler. Or floating on my back and kicking my legs. You do adjust to the temperature, however, and after about 15 minutes, I can swim crawl stroke at my regular snail's pace.
