Just did my first tri (sprint distance, but its a start!)at the weekend - cr*p result but thrilled to finish in one piece and totally loved the whole experience. I trained for it for 8 weeks using the Jo Friel book, and prior to that was regularly running 8 - 10k.
I did not run any further than 5k during training, so decided to do 10k today and had to stop and walk twice!! Gutted! Had high hopes of improving my running via tri - any suggestions/advice?
