Anyone here ever do a Triathlon?
Around here there are two races. The Olympic Triathlon which is swim 1.5k, bike 26mi, and run 6.2mi. Then you have the sprint race which is swim 500m, bike 13mi, and run 3.1mi.
I can swim, but I don't know how to swim athletically. I'll need some help from a coach over the winter. I can cycle, and I'm getting stronger at it. I'm not much of a runner, but I'm trying to get back into it. Cycling is so much more fun!
The next race locally isn't until June 2010. I'd like to enter either the sprint or the Olympic version. Not sure which. Can't do both since they are run simultaneously.
Tips on training?
Is this realistic?
I know there is a tri forum, but I figured I'd get more applicable advice from my fellow clydes and athenas.
