Well, I'm not sure if this is a lousy idea or not, but I'm hoping to use cycling to get some base endurance before I get started on the other two sports. I used to swim competitively, so I'm not terribly concerned about the swim, but I'm a lousy runner. I'll probably do both 2-3 times/wk starting in a couple weeks, but I do run into trouble just trying to fit everything in
I'm starting with the cycling because I enjoy it most and I figure it takes the largest time proportion of a triathlon.
I'm planning to do some outside rides on the weekends and then move the daily stuff outside once it gets warmer in the mornings. I'm definitely looking forward to it, but without dumping a lot of money into cold weather gear, it kind of sucks these days. It tends to get very windy around here up in the hills.
I could be setting myself up for something bad though -- I'm hoping not.
