comment cycle or swim without injury while training hard for a race
@JohnP so you're saying drop the programme for the 10k and do a beginner tri program instead ? That does sound doable.

I don't think there are any triathlon coaches where I live! lol Besides, I'm sure it's not rocket science. The one race I've been, the guy who won the 10k ran barefoot, those african runners you see winning are there because they had to run from their home to school growing up. I think coaches and all this swag is just a great way for folks to make money. Yea, there are unique issues as you put them, but one can certainly learn on their own. I'm doing this for the fun of it.

@JohnP I hear you. Thanks for the response. Yea the app also warned me with an "overtraining message" I'm going to stick with the program. Still my question remains how do I stuff cycling and swimming in the run programme I'm doing already. Can I do an easy cycle on an easy run day ? Or replace an easy run with easy cycle (and the distance will be 4 times the run just like most tris). Will that not lead to me getting fried ?

Thanks so much for your answer. Could you explain on "as you are paying attention and really sticking to the easy/medium/hard levels for workouts". I do make sure I get up everyday to workout. Or should I just focus, finish this 10k then get on a beginner tri programme ?

comment help me adapt the bizzy diet to my needs
@john true. I do want to learn how to cook my own healthier meals, and change my lifestyle. However I'm looking at this diet more as a kick starter. I've spent the whole of last year losing my health, going from super athletic cyclist/swimmer to flab and fat. I'm still currently in a situation where I can't cook meals yet (I barely have a home) but I want to start by not being fat anymore. So I'm looking at more a jump starter kind of thing.

Thanks for the reply. I looked at quite a few plans.So I'm going with just simple meals with a little bit of carbs and mostly boiled food. No cheese sauce.

comment Is there any benefit of “real” running outdoors vs running on a treadmill in gym?
Great answer, but all of @Aaron points are mostly true in Bombay atleast :)
