Thanks for the reply!
I have never competed in any type of triathlon event, I'm not insane though. I don't plan on going straight into a Ironman competition anytime soon. I was thinking about training and doing some sprints and olympics next year and working my way towards the Ironman.
As far as my level of fitness, It isn't what it was. Just got out of the army almost a year ago. I was in Awesome shape then, run for miles on end road march for miles all the time, I loved it. always scored 300 (max score) on PT test. Now, I just run about 3 miles a day 3 times a week and do some light bodyweight exercises another 3 days a week.
My weakest event would for sure be the swimming... I can swim decent but never swam for endurance or distance.
The thing that worries me the most isn't my physical capabilities or mental toughness but the amount of money it might take to be able to compete! I'm poor
and it seems like there are a lot of stuff you need for this! haha
Thank you for the book recommendation and the offer to answer my questions, I may take you up on it after I've done some more research.
