Anthony S Casey’s advice for engaging in triathlons?

Start slow.

Everybody likes to comes into the sport enthusiastically. But the biggest mistake people can make is rushing into it.

A 140.6-mile event (2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of cycling and 26.2 miles of running) is much more than a first-time triathletes should even think about attempting as a first-timer.

Triathlons are physically demanding. Don’t forget that. Take time to train. Customize your own training plan. You can start training for a sprint triathlon by just doing an hour of specialized exercise per day.

One event unique to Singapore is the TRI-Factor Series. This event is a four-part series of sporting events engineered for beginners, with the intention of helping athletes finish their very first triathlon.

The best part about marathons and triathlons is that most runners raise money and find sponsors, with the proceeds going to wonderful charities and organizations.
