Join the growing ranks of triathletes from the age of 7 to 70+. Even if you have never swum in a lake, ridden a bike more than a few miles, or even run a mile, you can train to complete a triathlon this summer including the 2012 Tri Goddess Triathlon. In this clinic you will gain the background, tools, and motivation to give it a tri. You will spend some time on dry land and some time in the pool. Participants will receive a 12-week sprint triathlon training plan.
How do I train? What kind of bike should I ride? What should I wear? Can I wear fins? Do I need a wetsuit? Can I wear a life jacket? Where can I buy triathlon clothes? Is it ok to ride a mountain bike? How will I know where to go? Where do I change after the swim? I'm really slow, is that ok? Can I wait for my friend after I get out of the water? How do I swim faster? How can I get faster transitions? What if I get a flat? I swim fine in the pool, but I'm nervous about open water. What should I eat? I've done lots of triathlons, but I just can't seem to get any faster. All of these questions plus more will be addressed at the Epic Newbie Tri Clinic.
This is a tri and swim clinic for NEWBIES ONLY! For more details, read on...
