I didn't see a thread started so here goes.
I plan on doing my first Sprint Triathlon this year and I'm going to need advice, pointers, and encouragement from you guys.
This is the one I plan on doing in June:
Distance: 1/4 mile swim , Bike 12 miles and 5K Run
A little background on me:
Last June I was 210lbs, today I weighed 191 after my short bike/run/sauna at the gym. I've always been a "strong" guy, but never much of a cardio guy. I've been working on that. I took up road cycling and can now go on a nice 15+ mile ride with no issues.
I think the things I'm going to need help with are gameplanning on how to put the pieces together, what kind of race day things I should need or expect, etc.
So, that's where I'm at right now. Feel free to add your two cents, etc.
