Hi guys, i'm doing my first sprint triathlon on Sunday and i've been looking forward to it all summer, as luck would have it i've woken up today with a bad head cold and i'm really bunged up. I'm determined to still do it and i know i'll be fine on the bike and run, but i'm really concerned about the swim (my weakest discipline by far at the best of times!)
Does anyone know if there are any rules against doing backstroke? I just don't see how i am going to be able to do freestyle with all the breathing problems i'm having!) Its in a swimming pool.
great thread guys, started my 12 week training plan for my first sprint tri this week and really excited about it! Having group swimming lessons so front crawl improving (starting from zero with it really!) although struggling with breathing still.
I'm on hybrid bike, but its nearer a mountain bike really and really need to get a road bike asap! The plan is to go to a bike shop, pick one i like, then try and get it on ebay or the like!
Been running for a few years with 2 marathons and a 2hr 3min half under my belt, so comfortable with the running!
I have a fairly supportive hubby, although he does think i'm a bit nuts......
2013 out of the question for me really, I'm climbing kilimanjaro next summer which is costing me a small fortune! And I'm 30 in 2014 so would be pretty awesome to do IM in my 30th year! Feel everyones pain re fitting in training. Full time city job and 2 live in step kids. Hubby is gonna have to be mega supportive!!
