Getting your wetsuit off - addition

MowfMowf Posts: 272
Something i have always wondered:

I am doing blenheim again this year. Everyone has heard about the hill into T1 and I have been thinking about what do re my wetsuit. In previous years i have gone for the tradditional approach of wetsuit around waste and then fully off once i am at my bike. One thing that struck me though, a 400m uphill run is hard enough without your legs being constrained by neoprene. What do people reckon about taking my suit off fully as soon as i am out of the water and then running up with it under my arm?

I reckon this will save me redlining before the bike has even started.

    If you find the wetsuit restrictive then yeah definately take it off and run like the wind!

    I would just ask though, because they might not want people stopping to take there wetsuit off just out of the water - it could block people getting out, this depends on how many are taking part.

    Just my thoughts
