Triathlon Tips

Not that I’m qualified in any way to give ‘tips’ but in my journey from non-swimmer, non-cyclist, non-runner, to triathlete(!) I have definitely learnt LOTS and picked up some great advice from other triathletes, coaches and (of course) blogs. I’m still learning of course and if I know anything, it’s that there’s so much more to learn!

But I know there’s a lot of other beginner triathletes out there and I thought it might be handy to have all my posts that give some triathlon tips in one place.
