“First Triathlon completed.1 hour 09 mins. Just like my first open water event last weekend, it was a steady finishing time. I would really recommend the Crondall Triathlon for beginners, a very well organised event on the outskirts of Farnham, Hampshire.”

Well done - it does not matter about placement - it is about completing it - chalking it up internally - I did it - I am a triathlete!

Bill C Complete your first Triathlon Challenge

Contributorbronze Bill C Completed the first Scorching Bay triathlon on Sunday - last in :o( but beat the time I set myself for both swim & cycle. Swim was horrendous & was all out of go for the run. Maybe there's something in this 'training' people talk about ;o)

David B Complete your first Triathlon Challenge

Contributorgold David B So I just did my very first duathlon. For those who dont' know it is a triathlon with two running components and no swim. I went along with my wife as she was also doing it for the first time and I just paced her. I really enjoyed it, although I didn't put in too much effort so I wasn't knackered, and decided to do more (at my pace this time (which isn't much faster)). I won't be home for one of these events again until Feb or Mar next year, but I will certainly be training for it.

Tony O Complete your first Triathlon Challenge

Contributorsilver Tony O First so called "brick" training session done. I could swear I heard my leg muscles shout "WTF?!" as I started running.

my legs were so confused I could hear them saying the same thing - in a drunk, thick dog accent!

Stephen M Complete your first Triathlon Challenge

Contributorgold Stephen M Had an amazing first triahlon. Swim went well, ran at my normal pace and had reasonable transitions (even managed to sucessfully complete the Tribesports featured dismount without falling off). However, for my next I am really going to have to invest in a decent bike. One i used today weighed a tonne and had faulty gears meaning my poor wee legs hard to work even harder.
