Just thought I'd make my first post here to say "Hi". I'm venturing in to the world triathlon in May. I've entered the Swansea Sprint Triathlon.
I'm absolutely bricking it - but relishing the challenge.
So I'm here - reading posts, articles etc - with the danger of reading too much.
I've started training in all three events -
Swimming - Back in the pool since Christmas after a very long layoff from swimming. I used to be a pool life guard etc so hope my swimming comes back pretty quickly. Technique seems to be my downfall. I've done a few 750m in the pool so am confident that I can last that distance.
Bike - Since Christmas I have been attending watt bike classes. I had to give up for a few weeks as I came to the end of my marathon training (final Marathon on 29th April). SO will be going back the week after.
Run - Well I can run. Not fast, but hopefully can concentrate on getting faster instead of distance.
I have my tri and wet suit all ready. Just the nerves I need to sort out. Oh yes - my first open water swim in a long time.
Fingers crossed I enjoy it.
