Hi I apologise if I'm about to ask some really daft questions but here goes....
Ive decided to enter my first triathlon (been running for a few years done several half marathons and one full, not very fast but enjoying it all the same)
Im confident I will be able to cover the required elements with the time I have for training but Im totally clueless about a few basic things regarding kit...
I was not intending to buy a wet suit as the swim is in a pool and I'm only giving this a go to see if I like it. So if we assume im going to swim in a normal sports costume what would be the best way to transfer onto the bike/run stages ?
Do I pull on a pair of cycling shorts and off I go?? what about (ehh hem) my sports bra ? (essential bit of kit for me) or if I did dig down the back of the sofa for change and invest in a some kind of tri suit would it give the support needed for the upper deck ?
Do I need to have anything special for my feet ? I assume I just pull on the trainers onto wet feel following the swim so do you put anything in them - like talc for instance?
Sorry this is so basic but as I've said - I am totally clueless and I dont know anyone who's done a tri before
