How to gear up for a triathlon
Due to the versatility and accessibility for all age groups, triathlon has become one of the most popular and rapidly growing sports among athletes. It means that there is truly an event for everyone. However, one of the most common challenges a tri athlete face is that they may be strong in one area whether bike, swim, or run, and weaker in others.
It makes it difficult to decide which area they should focus on. The best way is to alternate and train each of the triathlon areas to make it more enjoyable and easier to master your skills. You should take the time to learn different courses of the race you have chosen and do a lot of practice for swimming, biking, and running.
Each triathlon consists of swimming, cycling, and running. One of the important aspects of a good race is to equip you with the right gear. Sport2people
