Did anyone get the license of the truck that ran me over yesterday?

    OMG!...I did my first Triathlon yesterday(saturday) and my ass is DRAGGIN" today! I am achy, slow and fatigued like I haven't been in a long time......It was all I could do today to go on a 5 mile walk.... I have been working out hard to prep for this "Tri"....and don't know why today I am feeling like I did something I wasn't ready for? It was a Sprint Triathlon... swim 0.75 Km, bike 25 Km, run 5 Km, ....I SUCK at swimming! God it took me 34 minutes for the 0.75 Km, I wasn't last, But that water was F**KING COLD! My Ride was OK, at about 53 minutes (on a modified hybrid Mt. Bike) but I was forever getting re-warmed up from the water, and my run was about average for me, at 28 minutes....so I was about 290 out of about 340...but I finished my very first TRIATHLON! Think I'll stick more to the DUATHLONS.....no more swimming! LOL! Any suggestions on "recovery"? I think I want to sleep and do I really have to go to work in the AM? UGH!!!!icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif

    Congratulations! icon_cool.gif

    For recovery, just eat a variety of food and rest up. Maybe take a few days off from training.

    Hey, it's your first Tri - of course you feel like a truck hit you, then backed up - that's normal, don't sweat it and do exactly what you're doing for recovery. Take it easy, get back out there - s l o w l y. Walk, take an easy run, an easy bike ride, give yourself 2 or 3 days of rest, recuperation and just easy runs and rides, by the end of the week you'll be back out there just as strong - or stronger - than ever.

    And congrats on the first Tri - now you have a benchmark to build upon!

    exactly what I was going to say. take it easy for a few days, but do light exercise to keep the blood flowing (which is what mends you). Well done!
