It is RACE WEEK…and it’s this tiny towns very 1st triathlon. Hopefully they know what they have in store as 400+ folks descend on the brand new development, just north of Biloxi, come 6:30 am Saturday morning. While this week is one of reduced training, it will be busy checking over Lola (my prized Cervelo), gathering up gear and attempting to answer that most important question:
Do I or do I not wear a wetsuit?
Water temperature is hanging around 70F and I don’t need it for buoyancy or to help me feel comfortable in the water. As a matter a fact, I think I will lose time in transition taking the damn thing off.
But, burrr that water! However, distance covered is only 1/3- 1/2 mile so I doubt hypothermia will be an issue!
Sooo, tell me….
Wetsuit or no wetsuit?
