Hi everyone - I'll be blunt. I'm on the large side, unfit and nearing 40. I do, however, have enough residual fitness from my youth to be able to shuffle through the Race for Life 5k without dying, so that's not a challenge for me.
So in the spirit of "let's find a new challenge" I've entered for the City of Birmingham Fun Triathlon. I know it's only a little one, but I'd love some ideas on where to actually start.
I've looked at triathlon clubs in my area and to be honest they scare the life out of me. I'm probably going to be training solo until I've lost a good three stone and then I might shuffle off to one of them and admit to my lunacy.
I can swim, I can ride a bike, I can shuffle. I have found a beginner's triathlon training plan but the technical jargon is baffling.
