Triathlon Running

The scale is cruel! For the first time in my life my weight reaches 3 digit numbers in kilos...I have just run out of excuses ...I am not an athlete and my every day schedule is full. Triathleta has all I need. Practice programs for everyone.  I am a champion of my own life!

Triathlon’s first event is swimming. Athletes compete outdoors in a triangle course. Supersorint (.3 miles 500m) Sprint (.5 miles 750m), Olympic (.93 miles 1.500 m), Half Ironman (1,2 miles 1.930 m) and Ironman (2,4 miles 3.9 km) are the sports registered distances. Finishing the course athletes enter the transition zone where they drop their wet suits and prepare for the bicycle event. When running in the transition zone they have it follow certain procedures such as wearing their helmet first and not riding the bikes before they exit it. Super sprint (6.2 miles 10 km), Sprint (12.4 miles 20 km), Olympic (24.8 miles 40 km) Half Ironman (56 miles 90 km) and Ironman (112 miles 180.25 km) are the regular distances. When finishing the bicycle event, athletes return to the transition zone, following procedures like getting off the bike prior the entrance and hanging it in a specific place. They change in their running shoes and head on the last event. Running is the last event in a triathlon race and the distances are Super sprint (1.6 miles 2.5 K), Sprint (3.1 miles 5 Km) Olympic (6.2 miles 10 Km) Half Ironman (13.1 miles 21 Km) and Ironman (26.2 miles 42.2 km)

Beginners tend to underestimate the need for a plan, but structure helps all levels disperse time and energy over the disciplines.
Target a short race, like a sprint or supersprint. Resist peer pressure to go too long too soon, and give yourself some time to get comfortable with the distances.
