I never have really got on with wetsuits, and I hadn’t put mine on since last year. Apparently this was a grave tactical error, because it may still have looked like a wetsuit, but this is what it felt like! I don’t think I’ve put on any weight since I last wore it, and I have been told that they give with use and shrink back a bit when you don’t use them, but I never expected it to put up this much of a fight. It was for the Steart Island Swim yesterday, and the rubber things are compulsory. Fortunately only 2K as I think any further would have quite finished me off!
