    I have a hybrid. The bar is not as high as a road bike and not as low as the traditional girls bike. It also has slightly wider tires than a road bike so I can do some trails or rough roads easier.

    I'm in Northern Ontario so I know where you're coming from. I have a wetsuit, socks, and gloves which puts me in the water earlier that I would have thought and I'm not one who enjoys cold water. ...

    I am similar to you. I was into distance running and then moved into triathlons. I found my running speed actually increased and that was with going from 5 - 6 days a week running to 2 days a week...

    Most of the races in Ontario have duathlons in them so you'll have lots of options. A duathlon is typically a run, bike, run. The swim of the triathlon is replaced with an additional run.

    If you want to improve your swim speed, I'd recommend working on technique some each session. A large portion of swim speed is technique and you are probably wasting a lot of effort and air by...

    Had a nice run today at - 22 ( -8 F). The wind is what kills me so I'm on the trainer when it gets cold and run outside for the fresh air.

    Here in Northern Ontario, the winters are long and the roads are awful. I put a movie on and chug away on the trainer for a good part of the year. It's a great tool.

    For me, multisport is the answer. Your body gets efficient if you just do one activity all the time. I run and swim during the winter. It works wonders.

    As far as racing, full sleeves are slightly faster. If you're not going for medals, it isn't going to make much difference, especially if you're not swimming in cold water. I have both and wear...

    I've wondered the same thing. The advice I've been given is that good bikes take seconds off of your race. If you're in the front of the pack and seconds could make a difference in your placing, it...
