So I was a great swimmer (2k), cyclist (100+ milers) okish runner. (10k max)
After the brain tumor like diagnosis and hospitalization, things went cold. Started running again in a few months and Nike+ Running App recommended the advanced program for my first ever 5k race. (That was top on my bucket list)
I loved the program, it's all about distance, so just for a 5k race the "advanced" program had me run 16K! on one of the days!
Signed up for a 10k next, got a bicycle and there's a swimming pool nearby. Next on my bucket list is a triathlon.
Unfortunately for the 10k one week I ran a lot (Advanced program has you running 5-6 times per week), on the ONE rest day I had I bloody cycled. Kinda really injured my quads.
So I figured I need to meld my swimming and cycling somehow without injuring myself, and that is my question.
How do I somehow cycle and swim occasionally when I run about 4/5/6 times a week and not injure myself?
Replacing the run for cycling on any day isn't too good right? Since the goal is to run a 10k race now. Is there a way to balance them without compromising on the running?
