Depends on your distance.  I have a 2xu tri suit for sprint distance,  as that's my level atm. Specialized Sirrus bike & New Balance runners. That's my whole kit???

Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: 10/10/2014 at 17:52

I did my first triathlon at Warwick on 28th September, 1.38.39, which I was delighted with. Not fast, but steady. I was aiming for sub two hours, so to knock 20 mins off that felt fab. I much prefer training for tris, due to the variety, so it won't be my last one. Also gives me an excuse to take my boy swimming!!

I would consult Sarah. I do quite often on FB for dietary matters. She knows her sh*t

Pipram, I've just signed up for the very same tri as my first one. All I've bought is a 2XU tri suit which fits me fine. I have a Specialized Sirrus hybrid which I've had for years that I'm going to use. I may also invest in some new runners that will hopefully last me a while

Any suggestions as to what sort of fuel to buy for a sprint tri, and where to store it for ease of use. I have a belt and half a dozen SIS gels,but as it's my first triathlon i have no experience to tell if this is enough or not

Does anyone have any recommendations as to a good beginners plan to follow? Most of the ones I have seen start at more swimming than I can currently do. I used to be a good swimmer but this was 30 years ago. I can get it back though. Any links would be appreciated
