Once you’ve taken the plunge to enter your first event, make sure you have some time available to prepare without feeling under pressure. If you start with the super sprint distance, and assuming that you’re working from a base level of fitness, then it would be good to have at least two months to train for your specific event. This will allow you to wrap your head around the specifics of the sport, such as open water swimming, aerobars and transitions.

Just registered for my first tri and I’m super nervous

Doing my first Triathlon in August 2019 – IM 70.3 Dun L – Let’s just say i’ve a lot of training to pack into the next 10 months

When does it usually happen in Melbourne, Australia? Summer or Winter?

Fantastic video! Persevere with making worthy content and you can expand quick! Subscribe to our channel and we should subscribe back!

Great video doing my first tri next year at Blenheim excited and scared at the same time

1/8 triathlon in 2015, 1/4 triathlon and Half Ironman Dun Laoghaire 2018. Two half distance races planned for 2019 (in The Netherlands)

I’m gonna do my first race under Challenge brand. I’m racing Challenge Prague 70.3 only at age 16 with approx. time sub 4:40 at day of my 1st race aniversary. I’m registered and everything is paid. Now it’s time on me to work & maybe get some support.

Love your videos – helping so much and filling me with confidence! Thanks everyone! <3

Rules: u can’t cycle in the transition area (after swimming or before running), can u?
My first triathlon was last August, sprint, borrowed bike, loved it!
