Achieve balance in the water.

If you don’t you’ll be fighting the water, and fighting for air, the whole time. Not efficient, not fun.

How? Study total immersion swimming.

(2) Get a Bike That Fits

If you don’t you’ll be in pain, A LOT OF PAIN!

You must master safe running with no heel strike.

If you learn anything about running, learn how to run without heel striking.

Of course, there are loads of other things to learn:

  • Pacing yourself.
  • Finding a great coach.
  • Mastering bike skills, without being killed on the roads.
  • Conditioning, conditioning, conditioning.
  • Keeping your spouse and kids happy, while you do this.
  • Knowing the difference between good and bad pain.
  • etc…

Wishing you all the enjoyment in the world with this wonderful sport.
