Wearing an extra drag suit will make you work harder without realizing it. You don’t think you’re working any harder — but then you take off that suit and realize, WOW, this is so much easier. Wearing an extra drag suit will make practices a little more challenging, but you will be faster when you take it off.
Ladies, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a guy’s drag suit over the top of your training suit. It provides drag. Or, if that’s not feminine enough, try doing what several of my female training partners do: wear a spaghetti-strap tank top under their training suit. This won’t help your tan line, especially if you live in California, but it will help your time.
