I have been reading all the posts on here from other newbie's but they all seem to have swapped from running cycling etc, I am swapping from the Pub and the sofa.
Basically my best friend is a officer in the army and I opened my big mouth while at their summer ball, about them not being very fit and how i could do their PT with my eyes closed...... Its amazing what you will say after 8hrs of drinking.
The short of it I am now doing a Triathlon next year, and there is no way i can get out of it (MALE PRIDE as well as £50 bet)
Until this i really hadn't done any exercise since my late teen early 20's, I have now bought a road bike and ride 6 miles to work every day, and have done a couple of longer rides 26 miles etc.
I haven't started the swimming training yet which i need to as my last experince was doing my 1km badge at about 14 but have just joined a swimming club
The running is where i struggle I am a big guy, and running for me it was 100m not 10k, I have been running on the treadmil for 20min at 7.5 miles an hour, but i don't seem to be able to transfer that to the road, I run 500m and i am dying.
Running especially but any help will do :)
