Entered a sprint Tri a month ago, had no idea how to train for one (am also in a training plan for a half marathon early September) and now have 2 weeks to go. I know I can do the seperate parts, I have most of my gear sorted and the swim probably my strongest part but I have no idea how to pace myself, what training to do in the next 2 weeks and I foolishly looked at the splits for those completing it last year and now I have totally freaked myself out that I am going to make a total fool of myself! What do I do? Any advice welcome - I have always wanted to do this and I don't expect to win anything but equally want to do myself justice!
cake- fantastic article, all the kind of questions I wanted to ask - i.e. sports bras! is it ok to be on a mountain bike (which I have but is old and my hubby was going to have as I have a new one!). Searching round tonight for a tri to register for and just go for it!
Thanks both - I have to say that is one of my fears is of looking like a total imposter! I haven't got a clue about transitions and what to wear etc but just want to finish however long it takes. I will investigate bikes on ebay. I'm used to mountain bikes with suspension and my husband is concerned I will really notice the lack of with a hybrid which was what I was thinking of getting as it woudl do for very amatuer tri's and family cycling too.
