Hey guys! I'm doing the great north run (a half marathon which takes place literally the opposite side of England from where I live) in September for charity, any donation would be fantastically appreciated and thanks to all of you who have donated to me so far @ LINK

However my question to you guys is, what should be next? A triathlon or a full marathon?

Triathlon

Swimming 1.5km
Cycling 40km
Running 10km

Marathon

Running - 42.195 kilometres/26.2 miles

I have more respect for triathletes, as they need a more rounded skillset (like in MMA)

Well done Jay! Triathlons and Marathons are just brutal business.... I would say going from the half marathon to the full would be a good move

I would do a full marathon next and work your way up to a triathlon after that, unless your swimming/cycling is extremely strong already.

Personally I would imagine a marathon would be harder, but that's probably just because I absolutely despise running, and think that biking and swimming are sort of fun.

Biking nor swimming are fun when it is over a long distance.

if ya wanna be a dick about then I will just assume and say that you think biking and swimming are sort of fun because all you do is splash around in the water and bike to the local store 1 mile down the road.

I was stating how swimming or biking aren't fun when it is over a long distance because it is a physically exhausting event but you wouldn't seem to know that.

I will end this here.

Yeah, either that or I was talking about my own personal preference, I meant exactly what I said and you don't have any clue about what I do or don't like? One of those two things happened.

If you really want to get all angry about it, I can explain to you that the reason I said "SORT OF" fun is because I'm comparing them to running which I clearly stated I despised. Certain forms of activity distract me more or less and make it easier to push through pain and fatigue, which is why they're "SORT OF" fun for me in comparison to something like running, which I hate. I didn't say "WOAH BIKING 40 KM!! SO FUN LOLOL AWESOME!"

If someone says "Personally, I prefer X and this is why" why would you even try to tell them otherwise? It's just a ridiculous statement to even try to make.

Good for you Jay. Personally I would go for the tri since I used to swim, which is a huge advantage over people who just did track or cross country. This is a toss up though, because unless you love it, training for distance swimming is some of the most boring nonsense you can do. No music, tv, etc...

Holy crap I can't believe I forgot I did spur of the moment triathlon once...

I had to run from the cops then swam across a river then grabbed a bike and peddled my ass off to safty
