I think there have been non-wetsuit years but most IM event directors will do their utmost not to ban wetsuits.
As for weather, looks like mid-high 20s but who knows? I'd prefer it not to be too hot but but I think humidity is more of a factor for me.
Who knows, we may get some decent weather here to get acclimatised
Graeme - perhaps better now, relatively early in training, than in a few weeks time. Sounds like a nasty bug; hope you mange to shake it off soon.
It'd take me a whole session to do 100m kick
I was having a lovely swim this morning with a lane pretty much to myself. Then they started shifting the lanes ropes around to make space for a school lesson and it got a bit too crowded.
I also managed a 2.5 mile jog with just a ghost of an ache from the calf - though it tightened up again after I'd finished.

There's a few of us going to IM Austria Farm Boy - thread here
