Rubbish on the bike
Hi, I need help with my bike section of the Tri. I am a really stong swimmer generally coming out of the water near the front of the field (top 10) but this has its downsides....I spend the rest of the race being overtaken and it is really quite demoralising! So much so that I think I don't try hard as I expect everyone around me to be a good cyclist so they move swiftly by and I just pull faces and try and grind out the bike leg! My problem is a complete lack of cycling background, if I try and push it my legs hurt really quicky but aerobically I am OK. I guess I need lots more miles in my legs and cycle specific strength training. I do have a turbo trainer as a Mum of two under 4 I can't get out to train in the evenings. Any tips or can we make the swim leg the longest section of a Tri that would help me too!
