    Dude I don't think that's realistic at all to call out Gogz and Maine to compete in such a demanding cardiovascular event.

    1/4m swim
    10m bike
    3.1m run

    That's like almost 15 meters of actual movement and cardio.

    Its clearly meters idiot no one would ever suggest that a real man run for an extended period of time, let alone miles.

    It's only sprint distance. Probably finish in less then 2 hours.

    edit: at a slow pace

    edit 2: really slow

    sprint tri's are the most fun and dynamic tri imo just due to the fact that you can just about literally sprint/strive to sprint all 3 of those distances :bowdown:

    i have yet to reach my individual pr in each separate event in a tri (and who knows if i ever will - year of hiatus ftl) but that's what keeps me wanting to return to training

    do you think 3 weeks is enough to train for those events or is it too "short notice"?

    it's really not as intimidating as a lot of people make it out to be, as long as you can already do all 3 with some degree of proficiency you'll finish for sure :bigthumb:

    at this point you don't even need to worry about training transitions, things like having your cycling shoes clipped into your pedals already and just strapping in, junk like that. you don't even need any special gear, just grab a speedo, toss cycling shorts on top of those for cycling and have a blast!
