Novice Ironman Help
Myself and 7 other University friends have signed up to Ironman Nice 2015, but have zero experience of both Ironmans and Triathlons between us. We are trying to run as a group sub 112 hours (14 hours each) in order to raise £10,000 for charity.
Each member of our team has been delegated a section to research and I have been given the bike section. We are all starting completely new to this sport, but we do have a varied and quite strong background in other sports (rowing, rugby, running etc), so understand general nutrition and have a good base fitness. If anyone could recommend some good articles to start out with to read it would be greatly appreciated initially, as well as any good advice and tips for training, gear and experience.
If there are any absolute DO's and DON'T's when it comes to bikes as well to help filter initial searches that would also help. I appreciate this is quite a broad subject matter, but anything will help at the moment!
Also if you are interested in our story please like and follow our instagram, Facebook and twitter (@teamkaha), as well as a website, www.teamkaha.co.uk . We are also looking for sponsorship and business opportunities, and already have the backing of Huub, Jack Oatbar and speedfil, so please get in contact if you want to help or have any questions on what we can offer or what you could offer us!
Looking forward to watching this journey progress! Thanks for your time!
