Yep it’s only the first day of 2018 and I’ve already been out walk while wearing a wetsuit! Of course, I am wearing the 2XU A:1 Active wetsuit, since it’s the only wetsuit, that I have with me!

Oh and I put the wetsuit on before setting off! So in other words, I did 30 miles of driving, with a 2 mile walk in the middle! So I was nice and warm, by the time, I got back to the house!
