Subject: Beginner Triathlete
This site seems like the right place for me :
I've wanted to complete a Triathlon for years, but never actually made the effort. I used to run more often, but lower back pain several years ago caused me to stop. I started swimming for fitness a few months ago, which has been no trouble on my back, and biking surprisingly does not bother it. I figure, with two out of three I can probably train my way to running again, so why not make it a goal!
I'm 36, 6' and 145lbs, and live in Central CA. I've been lurking around here as I gain more ideas, and I found an Olympic course in May for my goal. I'm thinking of using the 8-week Olympic plan
as time allows.
Hanging around here as already gotten me more excited about doing a Tri, and sent me down plenty of rabbit holes :
) I'm sure I'll be asking questions now that I've joined, but I'm grateful for the community here. Sounds like there's a good chance I'll get hooked after doing one.
