Yo dudes and dudettes
Obviously I'm new to this running game. But i'd like to share my experience so far and if anyone would like to add what i should expect in the coming weeks.
OK so I joined the gym after a 3.5 year recess because I wanted to get better at other things. I've been swimming for a while but the idea of triathlon has captivated me.
First visit was awkward, induction, 10 mins on the tread mill all i seem to be able to do was walk with a couple of mins light jog.
2 weeks later and in such a short time worked up to 20 mins constant jog covering just over 2.5km.
In the next few weeks i want to push it to a constant upto 5km along with 20km cycle and swim, for those triathletes you'll recognise this as a sprint distance.
I need as much advice as i can to build up. I'm not a light fella, but already have big bodily results (no pun intended) leg muscles changed, larger hamstrings and quads. what do i expect, and what addition things to chuck in my diet??
I eventually want to knock off a marathon on my bucket list.
