    OLy is usually 1500m swim 40k bike 10k run, or somethng like that.
    yes, sprints vary.


    to answer my own question, I've done about 25 races.
    3 ironmans
    3 halfs.
    I prefer the longer distances.

    So far, 0. I plan on doing at least 1 sprint and 1 Oly next summer. It is a goal of mine to complete at least 1 Oly tri in my life. Figure now is good a time as any. I am a horrible runner so have no real plan to continue them, just want to say I did one and completed it.

    2005 was my first season.
    1 sprint
    1 almost oly
    1 oly

    I really enjoyed it. I have the tri bug big time.
    In 2006, I plan on doing 2 Olympics and a 1/2 IM.
