Tackle three sports at once and get fit by training for a triathlon.
Always consult a physician before attempting to do any exercise or exercise plan.
Step 1: Choose an event
Choose a triathlon that allows you at least six months to train before you compete.
Use a training partner, or surround yourself with supportive family and friends.
Step 2: Plan your routine
Plan your weekly exercise schedule. Train for each triathlon event (swimming, bicycling, and running) at least once per week.
Focus your training on your weakest event.
Step 3: Practice until you are ready
Practice until you can comfortably complete the required distances for each event.
Step 4: Prepare for the transitions
Prepare for the race-day transitions by practicing both swimming to biking, and biking to running.
Step 5: Rest and recuperate
Rest at least one day per week so your body can recuperate.
Step 6: Have fun
Most importantly, have fun – and savor your accomplishments!
