Austin Sports Medicine: Texas Triathlons

It’s time for another Austin Sports Medicine 101 class!

Triathlon: ITU World Championship Series San Diego

Ok, so you’ve run a 5k – maybe a 10k or perhaps even a marathon. What’s next? How about mix it up and get on the tri train? Triathlons are races that start with swimming, transition into cycling, and end with running. These endurance events require skills in three categories, and runners tend to do well when transitioning into triathlons.

Triathletes require dedication, creativity for training schedules, tenacity to train through adversity, and a strong competitive streak. Triathlons come in different distances, so you can start with a sprint tri and even aim for a full Ironman.  Come on – flex those running, cycling and swimming muscles!
