Getting closer to race day. Interesting that Hiits says the water is 54 but in the athlete guide IM says, "Water temperature is predicted to be between 56-62 degrees on race day. IRONMAN will adhere to the USAT water temperature guidelines and adjust the swim if the temperature falls to unsafe levels. Athletes will be notified on race morning if there is a shortened or cancelled swim course." Has it really been that much colder over the past few weeks than normal?
Is there any precedent for IM canceling a swim purely due to temperature? That would be pretty lame.
