Half Marathon vs. Sprint Triathlon

Not sure if I'm overdoing it (ok I know I am) but I'm finding training for a sprint triathlon to be harder than a half marathon.  The swimming portion is my week spot and I just started swimming two weeks ago.  I have plenty of time before July gets here to build up my endurance (the month of the sprint triathlon) so I will be patient but I am whipped!

A few great websites if you have any interest in training for a sprint triathlon and a good website about swimming:

Anyone out there with some tips (especially on swimming)???

  1. Thanks for those links. I bookmarked them. I can do the swim portion, but don't train for the biking well. Congratulations on working so hard!
