A sprint triathlon is 800 meter swim, 12.4 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run...an olympic distance is double that.
Yes, if you would like to prepare for a triathlon you should look into a couple of different workouts. You will want to try Sprint Triathlon Swim workouts if the swimming is what you need the most help in.
Depends on laps of what. Triathlons are catagorized by distance. Sprint distance is 750 meter swim, 20km bike, 5km run.
that depends on your distance and your fitness level. 12 weeks can be enough for a sprint. Or nothing at all.
It depends on the type of triathlon you are doing. The sprint distance is 20k(12mi) the Olympic distance is 40k(25mi) the Half Ironman is 90k(56mi) and the Ironman is 180k(112mi)
An Olympic triathlon is (obviously) the size they do in the Olympics and is the second-shortest official-sized triathlon (it goes Sprint>Olympic>Half-Ironman>Full Ironman) They are typically a 1.5km swim followed by a 40km bike leg, and finishing off with a 10 km run.
It depends on what the Triathlon is...Sprint Distance is usually a swim of about a half mile (0.47). Olympic or International Distance is a swim of about one mile (0.93). Then there is the half-Ironman (70.3) or Long Distance Triathlon as they are sometimes referred to which has a swim of 1.2 miles. Then the ultimate Triathlon that many work toward which is the full Ironman distance and that has a swim of 2.4 miles.
That depends on your heart rate. I suggest you get a heart rate monitor, use a calculator to determine your maximum HR, then do the triathlon at about 80% of your max. Of course, talk to your doctor about that.
A Triathlon includes swimming, cycling and running, with a timed transition in between each. There are multiple distances for triathlon. Sprint distance being the shortest is probably the most popular. This is a 750m swim, followed by a 20k cycle and finishing with a 5k run. The longest is the IronMan triathlon. this is a 3.8k swim, 180k bike ride and finishing with a marathon. Check this link for more details on the set distances for each race type.
