Hello all! excited to be here. Looking for a little advice/guidance. I would like to start seriously preparing for my first half Ironman. My goal is to do the 2020 70.3 in Chattanooga.
In the short term I will be racing for our local bike club to keep myself solid on the bike as well as hammering Trainerroad. For the 6-7 years I have been an avid crossfitter but it has lost much of its joy and working towards an Ironman has always been a personal goal of mine.
I guess the biggest advice I am looking for is how to prepare for the run and swim. I ran for many many years before crossfit and am a mediocre swimmer.
Nutrition is something I am managing well as I am currently working to bring my weight down to be lighter on the bike. My one complicating factor is that I am in medical school which can be a touch time consuming but exercise is what keeps me sane so I am committed to it.
Any advice would be great! Thanks
