I am doing my first mini-tri in July 2010, and am beginning my training now. It consists of a 250-yard swim, a 13-mile bike ride and then a 2-mile run.
When you take each piece separately, it's not too bad to think about. But I'd love some advice from anyone out there who has done one of these...how tired ARE your legs when you get to the run portion? And how chaotic is the swim portion? The swim scares me the most...I was a competitive swimmer in high school, but I can't imagine how difficult it will be to do 250-yards with all those people. How in the heck can it be done gracefully?
