Hello all. Good to be here. Just starting my triathlon journey. I am looking at my first race next year in May, so a long way off. As I am starting from scratch and have a long time to go how should I structure my training? Should I be thinking now where I want to be in October, February etc. I notice these things called base phase and build phase, should I be taking notice of that?? BTW I am 49 with a basic level of fitness
Thanks in advance.
Thanks Harry. I am looking at Olympic Distance. I want to get into decent shape before my first race. I am starting my swimming from scratch. Been for two swims so far, in the sea and I have a long way to go. There is a local sprint tri in Sept that I am thinking about doing.
Doing the Sprint in sept 23rd in Walton. First one for me,quite nervous, but got to start somewhere right..... oh also its free https://intotri.com/event/walton-tri-jun/. I have a second hand hybrid bike and determination!!
