I started dabbling in Triathlons over the last few years. In 2010, I competed in my first half Ironman in Branson, Missouri and the following year I competed in my first full in in Panama City, Florida. A few years later in 2013 I had my second bout with that distance in Madison, WI.
Since then I’ve been doing s couple shorter distance triathlons. I’ll likely do another long distance triathlon but need to make sure I have the time available to properly train.
There are several things I like about doing triathlons. First is that there is a high correlation the amount of training and effort to performance on race day. I also like how varied the training is. Instead of just doing one discipline, it requires work in all three disciplines to be successful. It’s also love incorporating strength and core into the routine!

I put a sample of some training from T3 Training Systems below.
