first "triathlon" attempt
I'm an 18y/o lightweight rower and have been considering trying to race triathlons as more of a "fun" side thing from rowing. at our rowing club we recently had a rowing triathlon race where rowing 8km replaced the 1.5k swim.
i did it in:
8k rowing machine row in 30min
40k bike(on turbo trainer) in 59min
and 10k run in 42min
for a total time of 2:15
I've read quite a lot of different things on the internet about what a good tri time is...but i was wondering if anyone could tell me if that could translate to a competitive real triathlon time? this was with no running training for a month or so but my HR was around 190bpm the whole time so it was a pretty tough effort!
anyway thanks in advance for any replies!
