When I was in Florida last month to watch Ironman I got bitten by a bug—the Triathlon Bug. I’m back in the pool, I got a new bike but man I need a plan. I’ve never done a triathlon. I mean I know what it is and that I have to swim, bike and then run to finish but heck there’s so much more to know. Just where does one begin?
Well while doing a little surfing I came across this site that looks like it might answer a few questions for me and perhaps some for you too. Hop on over to Tri-newbies Online and see if they have what you’re looking for.
The menu along the top you lets select topics from Getting Started, Tri-Training, Features and Resoures.
Under Getting Started they cover topics such as:
- Thinking About Doing a Tri
- Follow Your Heart
- The Night Before and The Morning of The Race
- The Transition
- Stretching: Doing it and Doing it Right
- Weakness not Strengths
Tri-Training covers just about any area in training for a triathlon. Looks like I’ve got lots to read. Training Programs offers a variety of 10- and 18-week training programs for the various triathlon distances.
Features offers some interesting reads:
- Tales from the MidPak
- The Spinervals Reviews
- Endurofit Training
- Not Quite Last (that will likely be me)
- For the Women Who Tri
- TNO Interviews
Under Resources you will find a variety of links and an online Forum.
There is a site menu just in from the right side that repeats some of the above selections and adds a few more for easy navigation. While navigating around in the site I found an interesting article titled Triathlon and Belly Dance: A Good Fit? under For the Women.
Now I just need to find time between my running, swimming and cycling to read some of this stuff.
