Keen runner, ok recreational cyclist, appalling swimmer here.....
Just dipping my toe into the world of triathlon, want to attempt a short tri in a few months (once I can string 16 lengths of a pool together), have had a couple of goes at bike then run, expected the jelly legs and difficulty of it all, but for the first mile of the run my calves went like granite and cramped a little. is this usual for a newbie and is it just a case of keep at it and it will improve? should I start the run particularly slow? Any hints and tips appreciated.
oh yes, for info, it was 15 miles on the bike followed by a 5 mile run.
