Beginner with an end goal of Ironman!
I am 31 years old and have set myself the target of completing an ironman by the time I am 40.
I have never competed in a triathlon, although I am a fairly strong runner and cyclist but weak swimmer. I have a good level of fitness and strength performing CrossFit 4-6 times a week as well as yoga twice a week. As a complete novice I am looking for any training and equipment essentials from people.
What equipment is essential?
Will a wetsuit help my buoyancy?
What sort of training should I start to incorporate and what events should I be participating in as a beginner?
Sorry if these questions are simple but any help would be really appreciated!
