URGH the swim. Week 2 had a lot more women than week 1 which meant lots of contact. I was fine for the first 100 yards then we rounded the bouy and WHAM some girl smacked into me. Whatever. I went sans wetsuit and lost about 30 seconds over last week. I made that time up in t1 but it was a frustrating swim.
What would you do differently?:

more OWS practice sans wetsuit.

This is #2 out of 10 in the series. Guess I have to keep going if I want to hang on to 3rd in my AG!

I own both a road bike and a tri bike. I am wondering which bike I should be riding during off season training, or does it matter?
