I'm a pretty skinny high schooler, and have mainly been road cycling. Had surgery at the beginning of the 07 summer, couldn't do anything for three months, and ever since I've just biked.
Just last week I started getting into a little more weight training. Working on my chest, arms, and legs. Cycling just isn't enough so I've decided that a triathlon would be great.
you don't' have to read the above. just crud about me. my questions are below:
1. crowded swimming
I've seen pictures of triathlons and the swimming looks really crowded. Assuming I do not keep up as well as the adults, how is the swimming like in terms of bumping into people or even people grabbing you (my least favorite)?
I cannot seem to find anything on the lengths of triathlons besides the ironman being 2.4/112/26
Thats what I'm aiming to be able to do by the summer of '10, but what are the local triathlons you guys do like?
3. wetsuit sizes
I'm 5'6'', and skinny. are there suits built for juniors/thinner guys? If not, I'll probably have to bear with the cold.
thanks guys, looks likes one hell of an endurance sport
