Triathalon moms?!

We have on in my home town in a year and I really want to do it! Or at least the first 2 legs (running and biking) since I probably can't find a partner to do the kayaking with. I need to start training but need some starters or work out plans!!!

Re: Triathalon moms?!

  • Good for you! Prepare to be addicted.

    I would try meet up for training groups. Maybe look for people training for the same event. sometimes you can "like" and event on Facebook and see if anyone else is looking for relay partners, etc.

  • DH did one last year, except we have biking. We wish we had a kayaking leg - so fun!!!

    This year i will join him since I'm not 8 months pregnant like last year, and I'm so excited and nervous!!

    I guess I'm not going to do a specific trainign plan. I will "train" for the 5K run like a normal run. For the swim we are members at our Y so I will just work on building up endurance to swim 1/2 mile with no breaks at the walls. And biking, well, I will just get out there and bike :)  Is it bad that I have no plan???

    I'm more worried about the clothing changes - any tips for how to transition from the swimming to the biking??  Just throw clothes over my wet suit I would imagine? Will that cause chaffing??

  • If it a short sprint you should be okay. A great investment if you plan to enter other events would be a tri specific suit. Fast drying top & bottoms that you wear for all three sports. the bottoms have a little chamois to keep you comfy on the bike.

  • I did one last summer, it was amazing!

    I would definetly agree in investing in a tri top and shorts. I wore them for all 3 legs and was completely comfy.  Also that chamois takes some getting used to so I say Body glide and also a race belt of you dont have one so your not fussy with getting your race number on after the swim

    I am due this July so hoping to sneak an end of season one in September in.
