Welcome Rob!  The last few years I have been loving open water swims too when I get a chance.  There is something about getting knocked around by the surf that is invigorating.  Good luck training and let us know what questions you have.

Hi, I'm James. I'm new to Tri and only started to think about Tri's towards the end of 2014. I have mainly done running before 5,10K (and going for a half marathon this year).

My goal for this year is to take part in at least 2 sprint Tri's. I'm planning on starting focused training from the 1st Feb.

Any tips/gotcha's would be appreciated and I will keep you posted on my progress.

Cheers
James

Just saw this on the front page.

I'm a month into the 3x Balance program. Finishing up my last week of recovery.

I have done mostly zone 2 on the run and the bike for the entire first month. I really upped my run milage last fall and it really took it's toll on my legs. Doing a much better job of stretch and self massage on my calves and that has helped my running quite a bit. But, I am no where near the milage per week I was at last year. I'm only at about 4-5 miles a week through the first month where I was at closer to 12-15 miles. I am hoping to build to that by the summer.

Biking is going much better this year. I got a trainer for Christmas and have been riding that pretty good. Swimming is also going well. But my yardage is down from where I was at the in fall. I'll get back there soon enough.

Hope a few more folks decide to do this plan it seems like a good one!

I'm on the second rest week(week 8).

Should all these workouts be easy/zone 2?

Going to get a sports massage this week too. Should I go beginning or end of week? Or am I over thinking it?

Are there specific workouts to be done at each short/medium/long sessions? If so at what pace? I know the plan gives examples but I do not see intensity given. Thanks.
