Hey all, I'm thinking about signing up for a sprint tri (5oom, 8mi, 5k) in September and I'm doing a little research. While training, gear, and lots of other topics have been covered I'm having a problem finding an article on gear for a beginner, and how it all works transitioning, etc. My question really revolves around what gear you put on and when. Eg, I'm a cyclist, and have plenty of bibs and jerseys. I also have a board shorts and a wetsuit, and running shoes. So it really revolves around what the layering of stuff is.
eg, should I wear a set of bike bibs/shorts under the wetsuit directly? or should I just use the board shorts, and then change into the bike shorts in the transition area? As well, should I change out of the bibs/shorts and into running shorts or just run in them?
I found this article and realize that I have some el cheapo cycling bibs/shorts with very little padding... could I just wear those and be good for the race?
I'm probably over thinking this, but thanks for reading!
