Possibly the most important piece of equipment come race day is your swim goggles. A piece of equipment so many of us take for granted, yet without them, all of our preparation and training is wasted. It's time to take your goggles seriously, and really understand what is needed on race day.
Wouldn’t it be great if most events started in the middle of the day, the sun high, everyone warm and the light as good as it can be. Sadly the length of events and road closure timings mean a 7am start isn’t out of the ordinary, and as we all know the light 30 minutes after the gun goes off is very different and even more so as the morning progresses.
