Feb Issue Beginner Section
Just got my copy of the February issue of 220. I really got a buzz when I saw there was an beginners section as I'm making my first tentative steps towards my first sprint tri in May.
But I have the following problems,
- I think you have an expectation of a certain level of fitness and ability in your 'beginner' when it comes to swimming, There is no way on earth I could complete the sessions the plan has for week one and I'm a month into my training (with advice from coach/friends), only on my most recentswim have I managed to get to 75m, then (almost killing myself) 100m. do you have an 'absolute' beginners section?
- Cycling, you mention in the essential winter kit about borrowing or renting a bike for the event but what about training? am I OK using my 14.5kg, fat tyred Mountain bike? I'm currently knocking out a 20k road route in 49minutes with stuff left in the tank for my run. This may seem like one of the stupidest questions in the world to you guys, or be extremely obvious - but what is circular pedalling?? don't the pedals go in a circle anyway???
- Run, I'm pretty happy with this phase and I'll already knocking out 5ks straight off the bike, should I go back what the plan says?
