    I'm starting to train for an Olympic-length triathlon (much much shorter than a full TRI), and was wondering if anyone else on here has any experience with them.

    Routine?
    Diet?
    Strength training?

    I'm a triathlete (former swimmer) and I'm pretty damn good at it.

    The answers to your above three questions will depend on your background.

    http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/ has a lot of good info.

    An Olympic Tri is a full tri:ugh: As compared to an Ironman it is shorter, but still in the same; a complete triathlon. If this is going to be your first ever, start with a sprint. It will be the longest 1.5 hrs of your life:mamoru:

    As mentioned above Beginner Triathlete is a good place to start. Also ask for advice/search in the Great Outdoor sub forum. The majority of the active cyclists and triathletes on this board post in that part. Best thing you can do is locate your local tri club and start attending the group training rides, etc.

    I'm pretending to prepare. The key is getting on a firm schedule with specific work each day/week.
