STRUGGLING ON THE BIKE
Im a newbie and have just got into Tri in July 2014. I have actually completed my first OlyTri in Sept and really chuffed about it. I intend to do another Oly event soon and so I have been continuously training. I have been trying to focus on my bike and up until 2 weeks ago, my bike seemed to be improving gradually. My first tri split was 1:23. My training splits now are in the region of 1:13 to 1:15, the first being my PB. In fact, my PB was nearly 2 weeks ago.
Since then, I have struggled to get anywhere close that level for some reason. I have rested for 2 weeks now but my quads are killing me after 10 minutes every time I try and ride and have had to give up after half hour.
My question is why am I struggling? It seems like I cant even do a complete 25 mile now.
Any advice is very grateful.
