    Running and Loving It, well trying to.

    I had been swimming as a means of keeping fit for the past 15 years. But I have never been able to pass the 500 metres mark until recently. Last year I decided to take running on the Treadmill and I noticed that I was able to pass that mark and the by the time I was running 5K on the treadmill I was able to swim 1K. 
    
    Later, I left the treadmill and started running on the road, I noticed by this time that I was swimming 1.5K. I feel that maybe now, I should doing the triathlon. The more healthier I become the more running I could do which means the more swimming I could do. Swimming is also is a great cross trainer for running which means less injury.
    
    Now, I still continue swimming but I focus mainly on running. With running sessions over taking the swimming sessions.

    Hi Tunde,
    
    I would highly recommend that you get swimming lessons if you decide to take part in a triathlon. Swimming is great cross training for runners, it's a full body work out that's nice and gentle on the bones (in my experience anyway).
    
    I found that running gave me stronger legs which makes it easier for me to maintain my kick over longer sessions in the pool
