Im 25 years old, and have been fairly active throughout my life but have never excelled at any one sport. I am still carrying a little excess podge from 5 years at uni studying for a veterinary degree, and I would say my current fitness is average.
I am really keen to get into Tri but I have noticed that a lot people who take up tri tend to come from a relatively high level of a single sport discipline - half marathon/marathon runners etc. I have only ever ran 10k, I am a fairly fit cyclist as it was my only mode of transport last year and I couldn't really swim until a month ago.
I am really working on my swimming and can now swim 1250m with small breaks. I have had back pain so my chiropractor has told me to have a rest period from cycling and running for another couple of weeks but they were coming along nicely as-well.
I am just wondering if there is anyone else out there in the same boat as me or if I am expecting too much from myself? The first Tri event I want to do is next June and I am going to try to fit in a couple of winter duathlons in the new year.
