Complete novice to tri - have found out I've got the wrong sort of wetsuit (surf). As my aim is for an olympic should I grin and bare it or bite the bullet and get/hire another as not even sure if this will become a regular addition to my schedule
I'd recommend getting or hiring a tri wetsuit, based on the experience of a friend of mine who thought he'd use a surf wetsuit and changed his mind after one practice swim, where he got very cold and very tired. He then hired a tri wetsuit and found it made a big difference - it's easier to swim because it will help with body position and it's easier to move your arms. Might depend on the water temperature and how good a swimmer/ how used to swimming in your surf wetsuit you are though.
