I just signed up for my first Tri. The swim is a 500m indoor swim. I swim this distance in about 9 min in training. Should I add more time for the swim in my triathlon. I don't want to slow everyone else down my making them pass me. I aslo don't want to be on the heels of the person in front of me.
I was also wondering do you flip turn when you sharer a lane or should I just touch the wall and turn around?
Indoor tris have several different formats, none of which I've done. I don't see a problem flip turning though. 500m in 9 minutes is a 1:48/pace. I think that would put you ahead of most people. Check to see how they start it. I assume its some kind of wave system, I've seen some where they seed people according to speed. I would assume you circle swim? In any case at 1:48/100m, I don't think you really have much to worry about
