A triathlon is an endurance race consisting of swimming, cycling, and running. Triathlon training is basically training for three different sports with three different training strategies. Of the three triathlon legs, training for the swimming leg of the race is the most challenging.
Training for the running leg requires a good pair of shoes and a place to run. You probably have plenty of places to run near your home or work. If possible, pick a route that has similar terrain to the terrain of the triathlon for which you are participating.
Training for the cycle leg of a triathlon requires a good bicycle. This leg is the most expensive in terms of equipment. Like the run, you probably have places near your home and work to train. Again, pick a route that has similar terrain to the terrain of the triathlon for which you are participating.
Training for the swimming leg only requires a good wet suite. The challenge for training for this leg is where to train. If you don’t live near a large body of water or you live where lakes freeze over, you must rely on pool training. The problem with training in a pool is the turns at each end of the pool. This training does not mimic the continuous swim in a triathlon. This is way the swim is usually the weakest leg for most triathletes.
