Triathlon in the Philippines is still a small sport compared to running, but it’s growing due to the influx of runners who, after conquering the longer distances, are looking for a different challenge. Just the other week one of my fellow runners and Twitter buddy @joshtadena bought himself a spiffy tri bike.

On Instagram, I got a question about triathlon. @in1dropofwater asks: I’d like to ask how you approach training for a triathlon. Do you actually do training for all three events at the same time, same day? Or you do it differently? I’m a distance runner… But my dream is to one day do a triathlon.
I frequently get questions about training and how to start doing triathlons. It’s three disciplines instead of one. And how and how much you train changes with how long your goal triathlon race is. And you may also have questions about equipment… For a newbie I understand this can be quite an undertaking!
I always say, “How do you eat an elephant steak? One bite at a time.” So let’s break this down so it’s easier to make doing your first triathlon a reality.
Be better prepared than Jillian Michaels at her first triathlon. ;)
