As discussed in my previous thread I will be doing my first triathlon this summer. I am fairly confident in my running and cycling ability but I am new to swimming. My question is, which distance should i do for my first triathlon: sprint or olympic? The date is mid june so i still have a while to train.
My swimming is poor but I have kept fitness ticking over through winter. My most recent sessions:
Swim: sets of 3x20m, 3x40m, 3x60m, 3x80m and 3x100m (not sure of pace just trying to improve technique and breathing)
Run: Treadmill 30min 7.2km Av. Gradient 1.5% Av. HR= 180bpm Av. Speed 14.4km/hr
Cycling: 100km average speed 23km/hr three hills (this was mid Jan)
Any adivce would be great. I am confident that i will be able to do the distance just the thought of doing them one after another is pretty daunting.
