Love your advice dustboy! I would defo wee in my wettie regardless of if the water is cold or not just to ensure you dont need to wee later on.
Make sure you pull the wettie right up and work it up under your arms and around your neck so you have full range of movement. Practice getting it off quickly wet too after a practice swim - you may be able to trim the leg length If it is impossible.
Lastly dont believe a word anyone says at the start. Most whippets will claim to be 'taking it easy' or recovering from the plague so they get an excuse in early.
Well i am running and biking and swimming but.... boy am i pooped. Not good tonight that after an hour tempo run I jumped straight into the pool and got cramp in my calf again. Didnt want to risk it completely locking up like last time so had to cut session short.
time squeezed and boys need me at home more so doubt i will see any pb's again.
