The great thing about tri training for those who are primarily road running is the cross training benefits of swimming and biking. If you can balance the training out carefully with your running race goals, the biking and swimming can help strengthen your run muscles without impact on your joints. Swimming can also help with your breathing.
A few RRKC members have dabbled with the triathlon this season and their running paces are improving. Jen K. completed the Olathe Women's sprint triathlon a few weeks ago. Congrats Jen! Both Melody and Jen completed the WIN KC sprint triathlon earlier this season. More on Melody.
