First Tri Sunday (Brownlee Leeds) bit nervous.

Posted: Today at 09:43

I had lost a stone early on but due to not being able to train didn't lose the rest and since then have put it back on. I  am fully aware of my diet and when I'm training I eat well, clean and hardly touch the booze too. I tend to be an all or nothing person, if I'm not training for an event or something or have a purpose I tend to eat badly.

I was overweight at the start to begin with and missed about 12 weeks in total of training  due to niggles and injury so didn't lose as much as I usually do, caused by trying to do too much in a short space the time. Usually I start January but have started 3 weeks ago so I can ease myself in and not rush it.

Nobody is blagging anyone.

Too many hills in  running and jumping up too quick milewage wise too, also being 3 stone overweight didn't help, all to be rectified by xmas, starting now.,

I had an Achilles heel injury whilst training for London and I just fell too far behind in training, got upto 2 mile swims, 20 mile runs but just too much to do so pulled out as I'll only do this once so want to give it my best shot.

 

I couldn't run for almost 6 weeks,  long time in  marathon training terms 3 months before the run.

Great post thanks. One thing I do have is stubbornness and an all or nothing mentality. To the point it takes over my life. I prepare well, recover well and  listen to my body.

 

I'm aware of the task ahead. I trained for London in 4 months losing 3 stone to get fitter for it, I was 3 stone overweight when I started. I tend to be very dedicated and get a buzz from feeling like a professional athlete, this stems form a failed rugby league career lol, almost went pro. So I tend to live out that in  my training.

I've done 5 marathons so know what to expect and trained for 3 months for this years ironman  so understand the intensity when in full training.

I am also aware cycling will be the biggest issue I have and have started to build that up, I will be at 80+ mile so on a mountain bike by xmas to get my engine better, plus the turbo too.

Running when Im fit I can do a marathon in under 4 hours. Swim is fine and will improve massively when I lose the 3 stone.

 

 

Any Triathlons or Duathons before next April from now? Winter events?

Good advice thanks. Bought a boardman pro 29er this week to get some miles on the bike, aiming to be upto  100 miles on a mountain bike before xmas.  Also got a roller for  the road bike too.

Yea was a sprint, firstly I was nowhere near fit enough, still 3 stone to lose before  xmas ready for London marathon training. I did it to see what its like, and if you have seen my other thread you will see I suffered badly from vertigo, motion sickness from the swim, I was 12 minutes head between legs after swim to come round, never ever felt like that, so ear plugs now and more open water swimming.

Great event though would recommend it.
