Pull Buoy Reliance
I have my first Triathlon on the 20th July - just a sprint. Although an ex competitive cyclist I let me weight balloon to 23st last July I took this in hand and have now lost 6stone and feel good. That been said I could not swim a stroke at the turn of the year. I am now at the position where I have been able to swim up to a mile but with the continual use of a pull buoy - so my question is this I am training in the pool 3 times a week and the other disciplines about a similar amount - eg running 3 times a week and riding 3 times. My coach in america has a great program for me and has been a source of great advice. But she is doing an iron man today so no one else to ask about this,
How do I ditch the over reliance on the pull buoy and will a wet suit give me the buoyancy that I am worried about losing when I lose the pull buoy.
Hope someone can help.
