Silver Trucker - I've been going to go swimming all week, but still haven't made it. My local pool does the lane sessions first thing, and I've been adamant that after the night shift this week I was going straight there. I found though, that every day my bed has won out over the swimming pool. Strange.
Thanks guys - was hoping you'd say that, slow running distances is bad enough at the moment without trying to go fast too!
Chilibean - I've been running on/off for a few years but only in the last few months started on a really regular basis. I can now do the 3-4 miles fairly comfortably (aka trundling along with my dog, looking at the scenery!) so I reckon I'll just follow Jevans trick of doing another 5-10 mins and building it up that way.
Hi everyone, first post, thought this was as good a place as any to swing in...
I'm looking forward to my first tri in May. It's a wee sprint effort. Feeling ok about the swim, I did a bit of swimming in my yoof and it seems to have come back to me. The bike should be ok, although as a mountain biker my first go on a road bike the other week was 'interesting' (no suspension ). My running, however, is rubbish. I'm really slow and once I get to 3/4 miles that's me done. I'd like to start going a bit further so that's what I'm working on at the moment.
I'm thinking I should build up a base first before trying to go faster. Is that the case, or should I be looking at speed too?
