It's only 6 weeks away, and neither of us have ever swam much more than from one end of a pool to the other, usually with a detour by the swim-up bar for cocktails, so it should be interesting.
We will be heading to the beach in the morning for a 30 minute swim attempt, followed by 30 minutes of biking. So this is a dumb question, but what do you do? Just wade out til it's deep enough and start swimming in one direction, then turn around and swim back? I also have no idea what to wear. Do I need a hair cap thingy? goggles? Then do you bike in the same clothes you swam in, or like swim in a bathing suit then put shorts on to bike? I'm clueless about all things tri, except now we have a $110 charge to the Visa that says I better get un-clueless in the next 6 weeks.
Wish us luck haha:)
