Last year (Jun 13) first on-line search for hotels immediately after entry showed no places available.  Reality was that most hotels hadn't yet opened booking for June 14. E-mailing a few produced several options before they became available for on-line booking.

I suspect that's the other factor for my improvement - the Aspire is really flexible around the shoulders

Never say never SC but you do need to have the full suport and agreement of your family to commit to training. I'm lucky in that I'm single and I only work part time; doesn't stop me being lazy though!  I think those who have families and work full time tend to get up at silly o'clock to get training in before work/family commitments or fit sessions in at lunchtime or as part of their commute.

In the Blue - I now have a Zone3 Aspire - old one was a Blue Seventy Reaction. I'm not sure the Thorpe distances are accurate. I have consistently recorded the 750 as about 780.  Also recorded the 1500 loop as nearer to 1600.

Haven't done any pool swims recently so can't really compare. But, have a new wetsuit this season and my OW swims have generally been quicker than last year off less pool training.  Beginning to think my old wetsuit possibly had a touch too much buoyancy around the hips/legs and lifted my lower body too high in the water.

If your OW venue does wetsuit hire, might be worth trying some to see if it makes any difference.
