Multisport 101: Swim.Bike.Run. You Tri.

Three years ago, I never thought i will love the sport of running. I tend to join road races almost every week but when I already achieved my goal of doing long distance running, I look for more that will also compliment with it.

Sometime ago in we have a weekly schedule of swim session. It's part of our cross training but when we frequently doing it that's the time I decided to do an Aquathlon for a change.

After doing two Aquathlons last year, triathletes friends encourage me to do the Animo Triathlon of the same year. I said, I don't have a bike yet but a triathlete friend lend me her MTB bike. Yes, you can use mountain bike for your first tri. Any bike you are currently riding will work just fine. It can be a road bike, mountain bike or hybrid. Many people have completed their first triathlon on a borrowed bicycle just like me :) But make sure the bike is fitted for you and not a rotten one. A borrowed MTB with a sleek tire was my first bike to use in my first ever triathlon. But after experiencing the Animo triathlon, I decided to buy my own bike last July, 2010 and did my first Duathlon.

Aquathlon is a combination of Swim-Run or sometimes Run-Swim-Run.

Triathlon is a multi-sport event involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance events.[1] While many variations of the sport exist, triathlon, in its most popular form, involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances.
