The Triathlon is a different beast altogether. You have not one or two but three different athletic disciplines to master.

What goes into the making of a tri-athlete? How does one tackle the prolonged isolation, the mental battles and keep motivation levels high enough to go across the finish line? How do you transition from one discipline to another?

What the talk covered:

  • Training for a triathlon including managing schedules and staying motivated
  • Triathlon tips.
  • What to do when things go wrong?
  • Tips for swimming.
  • Tips for biking.
  • Tips for running.
  • Tips for the night before the Race.
  • Tips for Race day.

For answers to all these questions and more we invited seven time Ironman and ultrarunner, Kaustubh Radkar to walk us through his journey and advice all potential tri-athletes.
