Pool based triathlons

Hi all,

Maybe this is a bit of a daft question but what should I swim in during a pool based triathlon. Ive only done London so far and I had a tri suit under my wetsuit as most other people seemed to be doing. Would it be best to swim in a tri suit or just use my trunks and chuck on a t-shirt and shorts for the bike and run?

Alternatively Ive got a pair of padded cycling shorts, would these work in the pool or will these just absorb all the water and slow me down?

    Definitely trisuit - then you don't have any additional issues to worry about in transition!
  • Agreed - I'll be buying one for next season having struggled into my top after coming out of the pool this year...
