Hey Call4fire23:  I have IT band problems in my knee too.  low weight and low impact resistance work against a wall and sitting on a step, stretches, and switch heat and ice 10 mins at a time after heavy workouts/runs.  Hope this helps.

Hi Everyone,

I've just joined the site and I'm looking at doing my first Triathlon (a sprint event) but only have 9 weeks til its on. I've just come off a Half Marathon so feel my fitness would be there just have to convert it into the bike and swim (I'm a reasonable swimmer). 

Is this too ambitious? 

Cheers

LouYorkPA - 2013-01-20 9:22 PM I'd love to "join the group" but I admit I don't know how to do that!

At this point, I'd suggest you join a mentor group. They are forming and a great source of community encouragement and advice for training.

Ive joined a mentor group and decided to go with this plan.  Doesnt seem like a lot of people are commenting daily but I wish everyone luck! 

My major goal for the year will be to participate in a sprint this June.  I will probably do a few 5ks in the meantime and maybe if all works out I will do a 10k.

Hi, I am getting ready to do my first Triathalon in June. I have been running and biking for over the last year. I will be working on my swimming at the YMCA for the next 4-6 months, incorporating it with my running and biking. I am looking at doing a sprint triathalon as one of my goals for this year. I need some direction on what I need to do to prepare properly.

Hello! I am signed up for my first Sprint Triathlon on June 8th.- The Grandman in Mobile!!! I am super excited and scared to death!! I have decided to use this training plan- with some modifications.

I cant swim right now :/ well, I can swim- but its too cold. I live in very RURAL south Alabama so no indoor pools within weekly driving distance. There are many options for open water swims and I have a pool so once the weather warms a little (its suppose to be 70 on Saturday) I will start training with my swimming. I plan to incorporate some extra back/shoulder exercises on my swim days for now.

I am a pretty slow runner, BUT I am improving. I am registered for a 5K on 3/23 my goal is 30 mins or less. (and I hope to improve that by the tri)

I recently bought a  road bike. I need to become much more familiar & confident with it. Our gym here does not have spin bikes- they have recumbent bikes and some with REALLY big cushy seats and arm things that go back and forth so I am not sure if I should use these or just run on bad weather days.

Do I sound lost? I AM - a little... BUT very strong and determined- So I will find a way to make this work I wish I could find a forum to check in with other first timers and bounce crazy thoughts/questions off!!

 

Like WHERE do I subscribe to this forum?? And I work in technology smh...

Hi!

I'll be doing the Key Biscayne Trilogy, a sprint triathlon (in Florida, near Miami) in July.  I have been doing general weight training up until now (for at least a dozen years) and did a sprint triathlon 3 years ago.  I have recently started running and doing some laps on my own again for this new challenge.  

Just wondering- can I participate in two sprint triathlons (.25 mile swim, 10 mile bike and 3 mile run each triathlon) one month apart?

I'm looking forward to training.  I may have to switch some training around (I have no bicycle access in the area I am swimming so can only combine swimming with running while keeping biking and running together on the other days) any tips on how to switch things (or at least what I SHOULDN'T DO)?

Cheers!

I am looking for a change, my marriage and best friend of 35 years evaporated, my kids are grown, happy but out of the house, in fact I had to sell my dream house and now live in a "van down by the river" - nah, smaller house on the lake. I need this, I want this. I am training for a 3 mile run, 1/4 swim and 15 mile bike ride. It starts today. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Linda

I don't know that anyone uses this thread anymore so you might not get much help or discussion on it. I am going to suggest that you go into the mentor group section and find the Manatee's thread over there. Post on that introducing yourself and tell them that I sent you.

They are very helpful, but be warned they are a bit crazy and 90% of the stuff that goes on doesn't have that much to do with triathlons. If you have any questions though they are a great group and more than happy to share with people. lots of different experience levels there too.

Starting this plan today to train for an indoor tri in April. I can swim and I can bike, but I SUCK at running! Definitely setting my goal at "finish and have fun" since I've never entered a race before!

HI MOUSEDOC - Looks like we are the only 2 in this 13 week stretch right now.

ERIN - how did your New Years INDOOR Tri go?

I ... um. For starters, my race is 2/22. That is 24 days away. Not quite 13 weeks.

Now for the rest of my intro. I have been running for about 18 months pretty solidly. I have just completed my 2nd marathon. So, I think I can do this. My first Sprint is actually ALL INDOORS! So, you swim for 15 minutes. Transition 1 is 10 minutes. Then stationary Bike for 30 minutes. Then Transition 2 is 5 minutes. Then Treadmill for 30 minutes.

A "standard" Sprint tri seems to be 15 laps. 12.5 miles on bike. 3.1 running. - Today I did my first dry run. I got 8 laps in. (I suck!) Then I did T1, then bike for 30. 10.8 miles. T2, then TM for 3.25.

I felt mostly good about finding a starting point. But Im shooting for the actual distances. I want to hit 15 laps, 12.5 and 3.1. - The biggest short coming was clearly the pool. Any advice will be helpful. Somewhere on here someone recommended doing 3 laps then 1 backstroke. Maybe that will help me. I am looking for a tri group / swim trainer to give me some help, but I'll have to plan better for my next Sprint Tri.

I just joined group. Ran my first sprint two years ago in May, and I moved to new area, and life took different direction with training. 25lbs and 1 1/2 years later and I want to go for number 2. Need help getting going, hoping to do sprint in late May. The swim about killed me last time, got ran over, pushed under several times and started hyperventilating when I tried to speed up. Experience should help this time, I hope. I still struggle with breathing in swim, hard to relax, loose breath easily. Guess I am just out of shape. Any suggestions or help is apprieciated

Should I just worrying about swimming or running as long as possible without stopping right now? I can run mile OK, little slow around 10:30, and I can swim about 75 meters without stopping for breath, then it seems I have to catch breath every 25 meters. Before my first spring I could swim about 500 without stopping.

Hi there still trying to figure out this website and forum. In the mean time I will be reading various posts and logging my workouts everyday. The main question I have is, am I part of a training group? Do I have a "coach" or a particular workout plan assigned to me yet?

Thanks!

Javier
