Dust off the Cobwebs from your Bike. Tri a Triathlon

6 Tips for your first triathlon

It can be daunting to take that first step into something new. Intraining Running and Triathlon Club is here to help ‘tri’ a new challenge.

  • You don’t need all the costly ‘smart tech’ or wetsuit or new tri-bike. Dust off your current bike (or borrow one), grab your swimming togs and start off low tech. Less is more!
  • Pick a short-distance event designed for the novice, often called mini or enticer, there’s even Pink Tri’s (all women’s) and kids only.
  • Participate as a team. Encourage some work mates, friends or family members to race as a team. Premade training buddies.
  • Cross-training by adding a session or two of swimming and cycling is all that’s required and helps your running too.
  • Add a weekly commute to work or school on your bike. Take a lunch time swim or two each week are both time efficient training hacks.
  • The first step is the hard one. So, start now with a friend as encouragement on a great new challenge.Groupphotos
