How much training should I do?
This really depends on the individual, including your level of fitness across each of the three disciplines. Some people are good in one or two disciplines but perhaps not all three. It also depends on your objectives for the year. Have you a particular race or distance in mind? Do you want to be competitive or simply be able to finish the race?
We recommend that you give yourself something to aim for by entering a Triathlon some months ahead. Choose a race you think you can finish and prepare adequately. By race day you should be able to go the full distance of each event in training.
LTC has a proud tradition of supporting new Members who have never completed a Triathlon to actually doing so. The Club’s zero2tri programme promises to get you to your first triathlon – Two Provinces Triathlon in July 2023.
