A certain guy was swimming in the water, cold water during the storm.
The author writes: Twenty minutes later, he cut toward the shore, all four limbs cement. He used to be able to swim all day, but he wasn't twenty anymore.
I understand he started swimming toward the shore and all his limbs grew numb (cement).
So, does "cement" here mean "grow numb"?
More like, heavy and so difficult to move.
