Hi I am new to this forum and as my forum name suggests I am no longer a newbie to triathlon but am now a triathlete having completed my first spring distance on Mother's Day this year in 2hours 35mins and 34 secs. I am in training currently to do another sprint distance tri, The Leicester Flashman, on the 18th May followed by an Aquathlon on the 22nd June.
Having been bitten by the Tri bug I am finding it disheartening to find no suitable tri clothing for size 26 plus - in fact it annoys me that the manufacturers assume everyone who does this type of sport is skinny the largest possible size being 16-18 if I am wrong please enlighten me.
We larger people are constantly being encouraged to exercise yet when we find something we enjoy we cannot find the gear to fit. I am trying to lose weight - trying being the operative - yet still want to feel comfortable in the right clothing while I am trying.
Sorry for the rant but its a big bug bear of mine at the moment.
