I'm an avid road cyclist, but in order to thinking "triathlon" I need to start running. Ugh. Despise running. Hurts every joint in my body. Ever see a runner smiling? At any rate, my goal is to start a running program (ok, let's be honest, a run/walk program to start off with). Now that the cold weather is here and I'm stuck in a spinning studio (for the cycling), guess the treadmill will be a good cross-training regimen. Wish me luck, advice is welcomed.
I have never been a fan of running nor have chosen to do it for recreational fun. One of my friends runs for about an hour a couple times a week and I know cardio is good for me, so what is motivating me to run is my friend. We have yet to meet up and run, but it's getting me to think about it and probably take action this week. Try finding a running partner and if all else fails, run with the bigger goal in mind... triathlon.
