So, my mother is turning 50 and 5 days later I'm turning 25. For her birthday, she wants to do a triathlon with me. We're trying to figure out which one to do in the Michigan, Ohio, Indiana area, any suggestions? Preferably around the middle of May.
With that being said. does anyone have any good triathlon training regimens or workouts they go by? I'd love some guidance!
Pick up a copy of The Triathlete's Training Bible by Joe Friel. And look for a sprint triathlon to start. At a 1/4 mile swim, 9-18 mile ride and 3.1 mile run, the distances are very approachable. Most folks panic about the swim, but in the grand scheme of the race, the time you spend on the swim is minuscule compared to the ride or the run. Good luck and have fun and prepare to get addicted!!!
