Hello. I'm almost 42 (yikes). I've been open water swimming for a few months. Did one mile for a charity swim and now just trying to get in the water all winter in a swimming costume. Hoping to start building up to a steady 1k or so once the water warms up a bit.
I've also started back running after about a decade. Mostly hills and forests and I'm building up to 10k.
I keep thinking I've got 2 out of 3 for triathlons but I'm rubbish on a bike. I pretended to do mountain biking at uni but hills kill me and I've never mastered pedalling standing on my pedals. lol
Entering a triathlon always seemed for the elite to me but I keep meeting people who do them 'for fun' and say its worth a go.
So, it is possible? Do I need an expensive bike? Where should I train on it (local roads not the best). Is this just crazy talk and should I return to my coffee?
