Will - how is florida looking?

Fancy doing the Vitruvian as a warm up?

And I havent seen you on the 2005 thread??

Never tried body glide - anyone know where to get it?
Meanwhile I was suggested the following trick last year. Put a plastic bag over each arm/leg as you get into the suit. This is a lot easier.
Doesn't help in removing the suit in a race though - hence bodyglide. I used babyoil as a one off - but not a good idea........

there's a thread about it in gear

maybe it's me but I think babyoil is always a good idea......................I'll get me coat

working at getting fit enough just to get round florida - had first staedy / continues swim yesterday - just did 1250m in 23mins (but only 3rd time in water this year) will only take a few weeks to get back distance

(literally for TLD, as in goose)

anybody who's anybody will be at Switzerland.... we can discuss this further when I get you cornered on the flight to the US.

How about the Vitruvian (nice little half IronMan) as a warm up for florida??

Snugg wetsuits based in Newquay are very popular up here in Scottish triathlon clubs. See their website www.snugwetsuits.co.uk - you send them a number of body measurements and you get the perfect custom-made fit.

"1250m in 23mins"
That aint bad considering you havent swum

I average at about that speed anyway.

How is the running and cycling?
