Dear god what have I done
Ive bitten the bullet and signed up to do a half ironman - Challenge Weymouth, next September.
Having never done a tri before I initially signed up to do a sprint, next April, however the opportunity to tke part in a massive event in my home town was too good an opportunity to miss.
However, I could do with some advice - should I start a program now, which will carry on right through to the event, or should I just spend the winter months building distances / fitness? Currently my swimming is ok - the 1900m shouldn't cause a problem (but I'm definately not going to win the swim leg!), the bike will be ok, buut my running is almost non-existant - the furthest I have done up to now is 7km!!!
All advice will be greatfully received.
