Everyone can run and bike. Everyone can swim...to some degree. I would recommend doing a sprint tri first, that is around 400m swim,20k bike,5k run or thereabouts. The best thing to do for swimming is try and find someone you know who is a good swimmer or at least has good form. You can swim for a long time, the distance shouldnt be a problem because swimming is very low impact and very low resistance. Its the form that you want, lets you go faster with less work. I too recommend that Triathlon 101 book. Let us know how youre doing!
