Atone stage in my life i went swimming many mornings in a Council pool that was heated in winter.
However this was many years ago, so my answer would have to be NO.

However next week I am starting to help a friend who needs exercise and will not go alone! Even though it is spring, it will still be cold.
I have a friend in sydney who goes most days of the year - Brrrr in the ocean too, and not a heated pool!

Yes when we lived in the 60's at Coogee, I would go to the beach nearly every single day...but I was a kid back then.
LOVED it :)
We go swimming every second day no matter what the season. It is beautiful and warm in the swimming pool and there are heaters everywhere, including in the change rooms. We don't swim outdoors, always in an indoor swimming pool. If you are inside exercising, you SHOULD e warm. We get very warm when we do water aerobics, and our body heat tends to heat the water around us. All the passageways are heated, so there is no chance of getting cold
ooops . . meant to place it here. No, Lluxi, she passed away recently. :(

Oh my !!! I didn't realise she was terminally ill.
by Lluxi
Neither did she and it was certainly a shock to all. However, she had suffered chronic illness her whole life so perhaps we could just say her rubber band broke.

RIP Jules.

Lluxi, I've only swam, paddled, in Hawaii, some other much smaller island of Hawaii, Guam, Fiji, Bora Bora, & Isle Of Pines. We're going on another south pacific cruise in February, so I'll try & get into the water again then! Last time on the Isle of Pines, I only got wet up to my ankles, this (next) time I'd like a bus tour around the island.

Marbles. Yep. got 'em all. (Our darling Jules couldn't swim either, so I was in good company.)
by Rice
Haven't seen Jules online for a while. Is she ok?
by Lluxi
No, Lluxi, she passed away recently. :(
by Rice
I am sad to hear that Jules passed away. My sympathy to those that miss her.x
by annfi
Ummm, thanks for that, Rice! Now I'll probably never get wet in the ocean again!
by Miro
Sorry miro_ . . . . . ^_^ (teehee)
by Rice
Yes but not often
by AJ
NO, & I don't even go swimming in summer, even though I can swim! I don't even use the swimming poo,s on the cruise ships, because I can't be bothered getting wet! I will get wet on a south pacific beach though, if on a south pacific cruise.
by Miro
Yes. We went swimming in the South Pacific. It was lovely
by Lluxi
pools, NOT poos!
by Miro
I don't know, miro_ . . . . . those norovirus outbreaks have to start somewhere . . Hahahahahahahahaha.

In my younger days, all the time but nowadays it's too much hassle even thinking about going to the pool let alone the beach.
I have not done so for several years but I did a lot when I was younger. I loved swimming and if there was clean water that was swimmable I would swim no matter the weather. I swam in very cold water in New Zealand and got hyperthermia. I was shivering all day and was cold to touch. That was probably the last time I swam in the cold come to think of it.
by Lluxi
Thanks Lluxi. I meant to check before I posted answer but I had just heard about Jules and was feeling too many feelings at once.
by annfi
Thanks to your mistake I learned a new word. Google is my friend :-)))
by Rice
I have in the past.. but the older I get the more I dislike being cold!
Yes, I grew up with a pool and we used to swim in winter all the time. Mum hated it
No I haven't, & I never will! I don't even bother swimming in summer! In the summer I will stand in water, at a beach, but only while on a cruise, as those beaches don't have big waves.
