Now that the air has cooled, does the outdoor pool need to be quite so hot? It's difficult to swim hard when you know you must be sweating like crazy from the heat. A slightly related question: The outdoor pool is so very warm, why not keep it open when temperatures are below 50 degrees? It's perfectly comfortable. Californians would think nothing of an outdoor swim even into the 40s. Surely Illini can be just as tough. Perhaps some informational posting would help everyone realize that it's acceptable, doable, and fun to swim outdoors in cooler weather.
