Yes - we got wetsuits

I don't like 'em they are hard to swim in :P But I'm sure I'll be happy for the warmth!


  1. Actually, the extra buoyancy of the wetsuit should make swimming considerably easier once you get used to it. But don't get too used to it because the water in Hawaii is usually too warm to wear a wetsuit. Unfortunately the race is early this year and I won't be back in Kona until 3/30 :-(

  2. Well - we have to use them for our open water swims here the pacific isn't quite as warm here in SF ;)

    it's the buoyancy that I don't like. it felt like every little movement of the water was throwing me off balance - and the water rolling around inside the suit was distracting... I'm glad we don't have to wear them in the race.

  3. I don't know when I will get mine =(

    I did 1km swim in the pool today (nonstop). I can't believe I did it. Good coaching and hard work starting to pay off.

  4. Niiiiice!! Should help with warmth too, right?
