Hi everyone, i have just signed up to my first super sprint triathlon to try and dip my toe and see if triathlons are for me. I am currently doing a fair bit of running in preperation for the great south run and i cycle a bit and use the OH's turbo trainer when i think i may have eaten to much cake at work that day. So i am not to worried about those 2 disciplines although putting them back to back may take some getting used to.
My question is related to the fact swimming is my weakest point, i can complete the distance but it will be very slow and don't want to be holding people up. With a pool swim do you just go up and down in a single lane or do you do laps? and will i be able to get out of the way if faster people are behind me. I have put myself in the slowest wave but still a bit concerned.
Any other tips for a smmoth first race would be very welcome.
