The Bible of Cold Water Swimming – Index

Cold water swimming is difficult and requires repetition.These articles are intended to help swimmers adapt to cold water swimming.  By exploring the many aspects of cold, environmental, physiological and psychological, I hope to help you understand cold and cold water swimming and therefore become a safer, better and more confident cold water swimmer.

It is really important to note that most of us are not naturally good at tolerating cold. (I certainly am not). Cold should be seen as something you train for, the same as any other aspect of your swimming.

This page is an index of my cold articles with a very brief explanation of the article so you can scan the entire list for what is most relevant.

It is the cumulative total of these articles that has led to other people’s repeated description of Loneswimmer.com as “the bible of cold water swimming“.
