I am returning to triathlons after a year break following the birth of my second son. I have competed in about eight sprint and olympic distance events. Swimming is my weakest leg, and I have always worn a wetsuit. This race may be too warm for a wetsuit so my question is this: should I swim in my triathon top or just put that on when I get to T1? Right now I feel faster in the water without it (not as fast a with my wetsuit). Anyone have any advice? Do people normally swim in the tri tops? Mine is a Zoot, full-zip top. Any advice would be great.
Oh, the swim is 1/2 mile.
