First things first, I have never ever competed in any triathlon competition. However I am very interested in doing it for the first time some day this year.
I am 25 years old and I have always been involved in sports, but none of endurance. I did swim competetivly back in high school but only for 25, 50, 100 and relays. I also competed internationally in martial arts for 7 years. But again that was not really of high endurance or multisports. (though it takes a lot of endurance to spar 15 different guys in 1 day or run as fast as you can from a huge guy who heard that ya can fight!!)
Anyway, I am really interested in Sprint and International distance triathlon, so if any of you guys could give me some advice on how to start training, what amount of swimming, running, biking per day, equipment, and a REALISTIC date for competing without looking like an @ss. (I know it sound a little bit egotistical, but DON't take it the wrong way)
I hope I hear from all of you guys!
Great site and GOD bless all of us, the US and our troops
