Triathalons

Who here does them?

A couple of friends and I have been thinking about doing one called Iron-girl in our area. If you do them, do you like them? What type of bike do you use for that portion? How long do you train specifically for them in advance? You know random things.


Discuss.

(yes I just realized I put an extra a in. )

I've just started training for my first Tri in May -- a sprint triathlon. I've been mountain biking a few times a week, and run an occasional 5K.

I plan on buying a road bike here pretty soon -- will probably get a used one on Craigslist or something, but there are some on bikesdirect.com that look tempting.

I grew up swimming, but distance swimming in open water is a whole different beast. I did a bit in a nearby lake this fall, and it kicked my butt. Will be focusing on that for sure -- luckily our gym has a pool.

I'm anxious to hear any more advice for a first timer. I've been checking out BeginnerTriathlete.com - Triathlon Training for Beginners for some training tips.
