Need advice first time tri in 4 weeks!
Hi, so I've signed up to do my first sprint triathlon (700m swim, 20k bike, 5k run) and I've not done one before! Bit of background I would cycle probably every other day between 5-10km easily, and can do 5km quite comfortably I did one in February with very little training in 27mins. No training pretty much. I did the marathon in 2015 also which I trained for 10 weeks and managed. So my fitness levels are generally pretty good I would do exercise at least 5 times a week. The only bit I'm a bit dubious of is the swim. It's 750m in the river which is a bit gross but no strong current or anything. I went for a swim last week and managed 400m easy enough. I'm following a 4 week plan basically involving 2 X swim sessions a week, gradually becoming longer up to 800m, bike 3 sessions and 2 run sessions. All will gradually become more. I really want to do this and I'm excited I think I'll be okay based on all the above but if anyone can give any tips or insight as a first time newbie to the triathlon world, it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, L
