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.
