Lo all, Doing my first tri on the 6th May. Sprint distance, so: 750m Swim 12.4 mile Bike 3.2 mile Run Got onto it two days ago so haven't actually had time to train (though been training for P-Coy in June, so not in terrible shape), and not exactly looking to compete. Also, haven't swum properly for about 6 months, though I used to be quite decent, so should just manage to warm the muscles up by the day of the race, but not hammer the speed. Estimated times based on a quick tester or two, so you know roughly what level I'm at; 12min swim, 35min bike, 23 min run. It's a nationwide university championships, so I'll be seeing the back of some pretty decent competitors. Wondering if anyone here with any experience in tris has any wisdom they can impart? Race tactics to minimise my time, bricks, and such? Also, since I won't be using a wetsuit, wondering whether it's worth getting a swim & run/bike top like this one here, and if they work well or create drag?
