First Timer - Advice Please : )
My brother dared/tricked me into doing my first triathlon (Olympic) this June in Pembrokeshire. I'm always game for a challenge so have signed up for it. I've done an 8 week front crawl course and built some good technique which I'll continue to develop, I've bought a good bike which I'll get riding properly as soon as the weather permits, and I've always been able to run 5k no problem (despite asthma), so am building up to regularly doing 10k in the next month or two.
So in terms of training, my plan is to add in more and more swim/bike, bike/run sessions up to and including full race length and then on the race day to go for it. I've never been one for following complicated plans and I also do a lot of boxing/weights and a bit of HIIT so can't really fit a whole new plan in on top of that!
My training week probably looks something like this
Mon - Swim-Bike
Tue - Weights
Wed - Weights
Thu - Rest
Fri - Boxing
Sat - HIIT
Sun - Bike-Run
Long story short, am I underestimating the challenge at hand or am I ok to just go for it on the day based upon the above?
