It seems like stupid question, but in actuality, the properplacement of your goggles can make or break your swim.Overall, it is personal preference, but I wear my goggles onthe inside. Placing them on the inside allows me to use the cap togive the goggles a better fit. I pull down my cap tight around thetop of my goggles to the point where it covers the top of myvision. Don’t worry, there is no need to worry about obscuring yoursighting abilities.Moreover, placing them inside gives me some extra security if theyget kicked off. Instead of the sinking down to Davy Jones’s Lockeror getting lost in the surf, if an aggressive foot does jar themloose, they remain on my head. As far as time savings, inside willreduce drag only marginally but every second counts for some. Whenyou are sprinting into T1, it is just as easy to remove in eitherposition.Try it out in practice first though before you make a final choice,and remember always to have a pair of the same goggles in your gearbag in case you forget your main pair in the hotel room or your goggles break at the last minute.Words of Wisdom:“Tiny details imperceptible to us decide everything!”― W.G.
