The people that watch triathlon on television and think that they can never train for and complete a triathlon because it requires 20 hours per week of training are wrong.
If you are (or you know of) a currently unfit person, that would like to train for and complete a triathlon in 2010, I believe that achievement is closer than you think. Did you know that you can be ready for your first sprint triathlon in just 12 weeks with your biggest training week at 3:45? Yes, that is only three hours and forty-five minutes of endurance training in a single week. An electronic version of the plan is on Active Trainer titled Beginner Sprint Tri Program: 2.5 to 3.75 hrs/wk.
Perhaps completing a triathlon can be on your 2010 goal/resolution list?
