Have you ever wanted to complete a triathlon?
1stTimeTri (First Time Triathlon) will help you accomplish this goal.

Written by a triathlon coach and former professional triathlete, 1stTimeTri provides a personalized, detailed 12-week workout plan to prepare you for a sprint (short-distance) triathlon. Whether you are a beginner to the sport, or an experienced cyclist, swimmer or runner who wants to cross over into triathlons, 1stTimeTri is for you.

Note: In order to be able to begin the training program, you should be able to do the following (individually, not one after another): (1) swim a total of 4 laps or 100 yards during a particular workout (this can include stops in-between laps); (2) bike for 20 minutes without stopping, at an easy, leisurely pace; and (3) run at least one mile continuously at an easy, leisurely effort.
