I'm really bad at swimming (think fish with no tail) and not great on a bike, but I've done some triathlons. And you don't get changed - just stick on your running shoes and a tshirt over your cozzie and off you go.
But wouldn't that feel all wet and horrible? No, I can't imagine leaving a pool without getting dried off properly. Actually, they should just make the swimming bit last. Why don't they do that? Is that because it's the part that looks least exciting on TV?
I'm doing a fair bit of training at the moment, and I have to say, I am loving it. Everything seems to have clicked into place and I'm running better than I ever have. Yay for me. However, the rest days are proving difficult. I just feel lethargic and grumpy, like I have no energy for anything, and everything is annoying and irritating. On the days when I run, everything is shiny and wonderful and positive.
Does anyone else have training-related mood swings like this? I realise there are so many factors in this, but generally, if I run, I feel like I can do anything; if it's a rest day, the world is a pigsty. I'd be interested if you have any thoughts, advice or similar experiences. Thanks!
