Christine S Did a Tri last Monday. 400 swim, 550m to the transition, 24k on the bike and 5k run. Cycle and run hard work. Swim was 10.26 mins, bike 62 mins and run 35 mins. Improved transitions a pb.
500m swim, 25km cycle, 5km run - sounds easy if you're a gym bunny but as a couch potato it's a bit more of a challenge!
Do a sprint triathlon Challenge rules
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“I used triathlon to get myself back into physical activity. I've since moved to adventure racing and ultra trail marathon running. Not because I think they are harder or better than triathlon but because they are more me (triathlon is so intense and requires a different kind of fitness than the one that suits my long slow nature)”

Paul W I signed up for a Triathlon Sprint for September 2013. I will have to train for this as I need to strengthen my swimming. Also, doing each sport after each other is a new challenge I will have to conquer. Looking forward to a stronger core! =)

Adrian K answered the question How can I use Tribesports to find a training buddy?
If you click on the location under your own name it will show you everyone from your area, then just find someone who lists triathlon as their sport

Carla, not sure if you managed to get a training buddy. Another way is check on the posts, most people have their location displayed, that way you can find people around you and then i guess you'll just have to ask t...
That's a super time, glad London tri is pretty flat route !
Ps just noticed the date bet your done and dusted by now, if so how did it go?
I have only done a super sprint before but would say time yourself doing the separate parts in training, the you will usually knock of min or two on the day as you're racing and adrenalin is flowing. Transition times...
Andrea B Doubt it matters but the London sprint is 750m swim, 20 km bike and 5 km run. Will be very chuffed if achieve this challenge!
