Putting two parts together for the first time:)
I have entered the Andover Triathlon as my first Triathlon and thought it would be easy. I am a strong swimmer, good cyclist and an OK runner.
BUT yesterday I tried to put two pieces together so I cycled 20 miles(fast) then got straight off and ran 5 miles. It was the hardest session ever. Every running step was like lifting lead weights on my shoes. I was running so slow i was also walking. I struggled all through the 5 miles. I cannot believe how hard it was to do the two together and I think I have allot of training ahead of me.
Is this the right way to train or should i been running one day, swimming the next and the cycling another.
