Just wondering if there are any triathletes on these forums? I finished my first sprint tri last fall and am looking forward to improving on that this summer (and shaking off the 20 pounds
that I gained back after winter set in!)
I bounce around a few tri forums but it's sometimes really tricky to be trying to lose weight AND train successfully, so I was hoping to find a few fellow fat (or formerly fat) triathletes around here to commiserate with! Add in the fact that I've been told I'm overexerting myself with my training schedule (2-a-day workouts don't make a whole lot of sense to a lot of people, overweight or not!) and I could use a little support on the 3FC side of things.
I'd hoped to complete an end-of-May tri, but I'm finishing my master's thesis and need to be reasonable. I'm going to register for an end-of-June sprint instead, and hopefully an Oly later in the summer.
So, who's with me? Any other triathletes, or budding triathletes around here? Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can do it - I started training last summer with a little swimming under my belt, but I built up my biking and running practically from scratch.
