Have you ever gone polar-bearing?
1 Jan 10
I've never, ever done such a thing as "polar-bearing," nor do I ever intend or plan to if I'm honest I'm not a massive fan of water to begin with, especially cold water. I don't know why ANYBODY in their right mind would want to leap into a nearly sub-zero temperature body of water and put themselves through such self-punishment

Here, they call it the "Polar Jump" and it's usually to benefit a good cause.. There's one about 20 miles from my house going on this weekend. It's nice to hear that so many people are doing this..But I don't understand how it's physically GOOD for you to do this. I mean, how good is it to jump in below-freezing water, I'm assuming wearing nothing but a bathing suit? I couldn't do it. I'd rather just donate some money to Make-a-Wish than jeapordize my health!

I wouldnt like to do it. Like you I hate the cold! I hate anything that even makes me think of cold. I used to live in Portugal and now I am living in England when I first moved over here I wore 4 pairs of trousers and 6-8 jumpers and that was in the summer hahaha! I would do it for charity but not for fun!
