Does anyone else think we need another sunny bank holiday to recover from the we just had?! 😜🙋🏼♀️ Yest was a logistics day.. took a flight back Bristol & train to Yeovil to go to ‘Tri UK’ ‘the largest UK Tri store’ as urgently need a wetsuit & Tri bike for this seasons block of training that focuses on speed gains & soon to be open water swimming. 🎯Gotta say it’s a pretty cool store, they have a ‘Kona’ cafe & the staff very helpful & patient 😂 Not bought a wetsuit before, so got my own personal shop assistant who helped analyse my northern facial expressions to determine fit & gave ergonomic guidance. 😎Realisations.. ✨🌱Don’t ever go for the cheapest wetsuit if ya can help it as they are not only ill fitting, inevitable made out of a less robust material, they are may include fabric panels that let water in rubbish for keeping ya warm.
I went for a mid range one that was full rubber/neoprene that complied with IM regulations of 5mm thickness. I learned a wetsuit that is really easy to get on is the wrong size. 💁🏼♀️They should be ‘tight right yet flexible for performance fit’ 😄 & I can cut them to fit if the arms legs are too long. I got the smallest / slimmest size in the women’s range 😅 The cool thing was I got to test it in my first ever in-store ‘endless pool’ which was super fun! But twas abit random taking it off & being in my tiny as my mum calls it ‘inappropriate tiny black bondagey bikini’ once fin, near the store entrance high up for all Tri customers to see 👙🤣 I learned I need to be careful with my long red nails, treat it like expensive tights to prevent ripping, store it flat,not on a coat hanger to keep it out of sunlight unless being used, to wash it with cold waterside & out. 💦Also if I tip a pint of water in the neck it will keep me warm. it’s about £300 for a bike 🚴🏼♀️ fit & I will likely need custom arm rests & that I have obscenely expensive taste in bikes 🙄😂 I hope ya had a good start to the week peeps! 😉
