Most new triathletes underestimate this statement. To get good at each sport, you generally (very generally) need to:<br><br>
Swim - Work on technique. Lots of drills.<br>
Bike - Ride hard. Painfully hard.<br>
Run - Just run a lot. As much as you can without getting hurt.

Thank you again for all the advice!<br><br>
I did find a rec center with a swim coach who is able to evaluate technique. I also found a local bike shop that offers classes on bike maintenance, i.e. how to change a tire, etc.<br><br>
Let the fun begin!

So, we scared ya huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> J/K<br><br>
Actually I am going to hang out here for a while as well, that is if you all will have me?<br><br>
Coming off a year of training for a 24 hour and a 100 mile. I am a bit burned out on 8-12 hour training runs, That and I have chosen to completely heal this damn IT band. I am going to still try and hold a strong base next year maybe 40 mpw but nothing like this past year.<br><br>
I am currently coaching swimming and like one other on here (forgot the name, I pretty much grew up looking at a black line) but Biking, no clue on that contraption. Will look for some guidance. Well, I still need to get one first, but I believe that will be solved soon.

Yup, you are the one, just started back up swimming about 3 weeks ago, slow goes it, but back to 3,000 yds Im practices pretty quickly, ugghh, and coaching about 2 months ago.<br><br>
Thanks, I look forward to all kinds of advice on redlining and pain when it comes to the bike, I love pain!

Mine thoughts as a newbie, just finishing my first a few months ago:<br><br>
you can't run as much, focus on your weaknesses and the running will come back into the mix naturally. You will never run anywhere near what you used to, so forget about the MPW. You can never do a 20+ run between now and 2011 and be okay, it's nothing new. Swimming next to other people, or swimming period is new. The difference between a biker and runner on the bike is very apparent when there's a hill in the mix, runners can somewhat fake it pretty well until a hill comes along. Louisville will have hills.
