swim, bike, run, drink
I have to admit that the whole competitive triathlon bug has yet to really sink its teeth into me. In my (admittedly) limited experience of a couple of Sprint and Olympic distance events, two Half Ironman events and one full Ironman I’ve found it all a little too testosterone fuelled and if ever there was a case of ‘all the gear, no idea’ then triathlon is where it’s at. Having said that, each discipline is tremendously rewarding in its own right, linking them together is far more challenging than you’d first think and the training necessary to put in a half decent time can be a right laugh. I’m certainly going to keep at it…but it’ll be a cold day in Hell before I admit to being one!
