Triathlon Workout: Cycle 2 (Olympic Distance) - Week 2, Day 5
Completing a triathlon takes strength, speed, endurance, and flexibility. Triathlon training is balanced, whole-body training. In other sports you may wind up building strength in some areas, while accruing weaknesses in others. Triathletes get body benefits from running, cycling, and swimming, and as a result are lean and fit from head to toe.
After the sprint-distance triathlon, many athletes have their sights set on an Olympic distance event. If that's your goal, then this comprehensive program is for you.
