A common question among triathletes is, “Should I put my goggles under or over my cap?” It depends on if we’re talking about swimming in a pool or in the open water, and particularly in a race. In a pool, it’s a matter of personal preference. Goggles aren’t likely to fall off if it’s just a pool workout.
