They've been quite specific hints; for race day - no wind, a little light cloud cover, temp low 20s, low humidity; in the run-up - rain & low temps for a couple of weeks prior to 23/6 to keep water temps down, then warming up gradually in the final week.

Hope that suits everyone

I've dropped a few hints re the weather Happychap but nothing formal yet.

Welcome ChaneyBee. It'll be great

Training is starting to get serious, which is a novelty for me! Will be better when I get rid of an annoyingly persistent calf niggle and can start running properly again.

Got myself sufficiently organised this morning to make my first attempt at a longer, hillier commute to work.  Just under 20miles instead of 5.5m and with 3 hills of 1-1.5miles each.  Primary aim was to work on the hills rather than just dropping through the gears and spinning. Overall average speed was a bit disappointing but it sets a benchmark to improve on.

Wimped out of taking a similar route home and fell back to my normal route which seemed a bit easier than usual; wasn't any quicker though.

Wondered what you were doing so far down the table Seren

Long, hilly bike commute to work; shorter, less hilly commute home

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.
