Tips for Ironman Training

The Ironman Triathlon is a huge commitment. Take a look at several races, talk to people who have done the race, look up information on-line, etc. to make sure it is the right fit.

It sounds great and certainly can be, but for the recreational cyclist or triathlete, a minute time savings on your bike split can cost a small fortune! Of course, the greater the distance the bike segment (i.e. Sprint Tri vs. Ironman Distance), the bigger the time savings will be.
