Would any of you super smart experienced tri folk help me out with a training programme? This is my situ...
Sprint tri on 25 Aug (sevenoaks, kent) with the swim in the pool. Marathon on sunday (manchester).
RUNNING: Have been running for 16 months, 4 months seriously. Just finishing a 16-week marathon training programme to run in 4'30" (4 runs pw peaking at 37 miles). PB for a 5k is 26mins (but haven't challenged that in over a year), half in 1hr58 (felt v comfortable). Hoping to run it in under 4'15".
SWIMMING: Swam a lot as an adult and teen but not for ages and - argh - only breast stroke so will have to learn front crawl.
CYCLING: Haven't cycled since I trained for london to brighton on a tandem last september. That went well and we managed the hills nicely and without stopping. Live in London so could cycle to work which would be 10miles per day.
Other than that, am 32 and don't have any injuries. Heart rate is 52, bmi 21.
Any tips would be welcome. I'm not looking to complete the tri in a target time at the moment but want to be in tiptop shape and perform well.
Rakhee, can understand why you mightr feel disapppointed but give yourself the credit for carrying on when you were in pain - and you'll be able to knock so much off your PB if you decide to run again. Rest easy
