I was last out of the pool last year, but got most of them on the bike and a few on the run, but I want to go sub 1hr 30 for our local sprint tri so I need to knock 5mins off my terrible swim time. I don't really mind being last. It gives me a chance to be cheeky to the fast group waiting to go in after me. I don't mind being last at that point, but I do mind the fast group catching me before the end.
Actually went for a swim today. And exercised twice on sunday. Still don't have my mojo but I guess I need to battle through it. I need to book in to a race to get the fear motivation going. 1st triathlon of the season on the 26th april. I will not be last out of the pool!
Yeah, how can sitting on the sofa eating sweeties for two months make so unfit?
I got in the pool today. It was heaving. Although at the end the 30 minute session there was just three of us in the lane which was quite nice. I actually did a similar distance to last year before injury which was nice although my fc breathing is as bad as last year.
Barry, can you warm up by running...is it just getting your heart going? In one novice triathlon i did one guy started to wade the shallow sections, no one batted an eyelid. And I saw him finish the run.
