Is it acceptable to warm up in fins?

Discussion in 'Triathlon' started by Radioactive Man, Mar 21, 2003.

  1. I normally swim the first several hundred yards of my swim training sessions in fins as part of the
    warm up. I would like to do this at triathlons also. My question to the regulars: is this acceptable
    at a triathlon? I know that by merely using fins on the warmup, I'm not violating any USAT rules,
    but do race officials normally frown upon this sort of thing?

    I think you would be required to wear *at least* a bathing suit as well...

    Yes. It is acceptable. Just don't let anyone see you at the swim finish with them! Wear a baggy
    wetsuit and claim they're your shoulderblades under there.
     
  4. My brother,

    Then what's that bulge in the front of the wetsuit?

    Silly boy, the bulge in the front would be the snorkel.

  8. Brother Rick,

    You can blow my snorkel anytime, but you're right. Sometimes it's hard to breath when your mouth is
    stuffed. The key is to relax the mouth.

    I'd be a bite'n maniac. If it's going in, nothing's going back out.(Shawshank redemption) Guid,
    sometimes I get the distinct feeling that you may be........ gay?(happy) I once heard a tanked
    up "happy" pan handler in downtown rush

    they're all fags". Huh? It's okay to have an open mind, just don't let your brains fall out in
    the process.

  10. Rick, Beef, Swinger -

    You are teasing Fr. Guido. Yes, you are not ecce. Much more passion, more vigor, more intellect,
    more man. You must forgive me, my son, for confusing the two of you.

    Perhaps we should take our passions in a more private setting. I'd hate for the whole forum to see
    what's going on here. To my confessional, perhaps? My e-mail works. Send me a note. My brains won't
    fall out, but something else is about to pop out.
