Legal doping 🙂 what’s out there that can increase performance…i recently discovered beetroot juice and my is it awesome.

OK…. It true.. No talent..

As a beginner, I’d be really interested in how to relate training time to swim/bike/run length. I’m looking at doing 500m/20km/5km cross-triathlon events. I don’t need to be training for IM distance components, so doing 3hour bike sessions seems excessive. I have a feel for how to divide training time proportionally, but not really how to set run/bike interval distances and repetitions or swim sets for shorter distances.
I suspect that swimming training won’t really change, as swimming seems to be mostly technique, but I can’t seem to find any rules fo thumb or guidelines on how to plan run/bike training to target specific distances. Thanks!

Great video guys! I was wondering whether these sessions also make sense for short distance race?

I’d like some more content on time management. The week of the and the day of the race are both tricky to manage.

I have made the decision to one day compete in an Ironman. I have done 1 sprint triathlon and about 8 half marathons. Looking to upgrade my bike from my 1992 Trek Mountain bike. Not looking to spend more than $1500 and would like to be around $1000. Any thoughts? I found a Trek Emonda alr4 for under $1000. Will this work?

I was wondering about the importance of strength training in between swiming/cycling/runnning sessions. Isn’t it important for core stability and stuff?

When you guys talk about ‘threshold’ intensity for swimming, is that related to your Critical Swim Speed?

Where was the pool?
