Also, put your T1 gear in a bin bag to keep dry until it is needed. Did an oly tri last year and T1 was wetter than the sea i had just come out of!! Towel and talc to stand on to dry feet were totally sodden. Talc in tri shoes (on pedals) was a paste. It was july though, so not cold.
I am already here at the campsite. Water temp 13-14 degrees. Wanted to swim Wednesday evening but no session on, so ran round the lake a couple of times. Cold, windy and choppy, so glad i didn't swim. Biked some of the course today and a tad windy. Think we are in for a tough day. I am using this as a training race in prep for the full Outlaw, so i will put on top of my trisuit, either a short sleeve cycling jersey and/or a gillet, thin arm warmers and gloves. Also, i will use toe covers. Tri shoes and cold wet windy conditions mean very cold feet, which i hate. Been hot in the sun here, the last two days, so fingers crossed for Sunday.
Very do-able and you don't HAVE to do mega hours of training. Most time consuming session is the long bike, so get up early at the weekend and get out the door at 6am and you can do 100 miles and be home for lunch.
