When the subject of triathlons has come up in the past I've always said "NO WAY!"
But, I just listened to a podcast* about triathlons that I thought had some really interesting points, and I quote:
“Without a doubt, the people who make the strongest athletes in triathlon come from a running background.”
“(By training for a triathlon) …you’ve consistently run for 12 weeks without getting injured, you’ve done all this hard work on the bike without getting injured, your body’s had a different stimulus without getting injured, and all of a sudden the result of that is, it turns out, you’ve got out of your own way and you’ve developed a different way of training that’s going to allow you to get even faster on the run.”
I can swim a bit, and I've got a bike... maybe I'm tempted...
Have you tri-ed?
