Can I ask a swimming question to you experts please?

Just learnt to front crawl recently but have got addicted to swimming with pull buoy, legs have mind of their own without it and I have no idea what they're meant to do, stay still - flap around??

Is swimming with a pull buoy feel same as wearing a wetsuit or do I need to wean myself off it, pleeease don't make me give it up.

Just read your FAQ, was really helpful, thanks.  If you do a video of the bike course, be interested to see it and get your opinion of it compared to last year.  I've never done it so am completely in the dark but very nervous of the bike course at the moment.

Mentors and Mentee's thread 2014

I'd love a mentor if anyone hasn't committed yet, I've stupidly signed up to IM at Bolton with no triathlon experience whatsoever, signed up for a couple of smaller races beforehand but struggling a bit now with motivation and getting a bit disheartened some days.  Using the fink book but not really understanding heart rates and stuff.  Any help and kick up the arse would be gratefully received

Oh that is just toooo much informatoon and gross!! How would you face your family and friends again crossing the finishing line with a big lump of poo stuck inside your tri suit, that indeed would cause some serious chafing

I seriously cannot pee on my bike or during the run, I will smell like an old pissy lady at the end and pretty sure will get a chafed foof, how often do these portsloos appear at IM, quite worried about this issue now and also worried about eating gels as keep hearing people say they make you shit yourself??

I've signed up for IM in Bolton this year and am worried about the bike route, has anyone confirmed it will be easier this year?  This is my first triathlon although I've signed up for couple of local smaller ones before so need all the help I can get!!  Where can I look at the new bike and run route?
