CT last night was 30 minutes at 51 deg F. The first 5 minutes was a little hard but then the rest was pretty delightful. I took core temps before, during and after again. They were as follows:
- Before: 97.2
- During: 98.9
- 5 min after: 98.2
- 10 min after: 97.1
- 15 min after: 97.1
- 20 min after: 97.2
So my core temp didn’t drop as much this time. I wonder why. Shivering afterward lasted only about 5 minutes.
I’ve decided I’m only taking baths in the low 50s F now. I’ve worked my way down and I’m ready for it now, so doing anything warmer just doesn’t make sense – plus, warm temps are actually harder. The search for a new (used) freezer is on…I have 3 Craigslist leads. Hopefully one of them will pan out better than the last one. The 1-liter bottles aren’t working for me. It doesn’t get the water cold enough and it’s too much hassle. Gallon jugs are a little better – fewer things to bother with – but I need more of them to bring the temp down enough.
Must go for now. Perhaps an update later.
