Subject: Some guy who wants to begin the tri dream
Some im just a guy who saw there was a triathlon happening locally to me and I've decided to enter. I am a regular cyclist but have never entered a tri event. Basically, i have no idea what to wear, tri top withh sleeves or no sleeves ? How often do i train? And the big question - do i shave under arms ? Im a pretty hairy dude so it could look terrible if i dont and go sleeveles.

Any help would be great

There are some great beginner plans on the site - Don Fink wrote a number of triathlon training books as have others but most important is committing to do all 3 sports 3x week & some strength & stretching work..and COMMIT to a goal race!

Joe Friel is perhaps the most prolific triathlon writer out there. He's penned many books. The Triathletes Training Bible is a classic. I know that he also wrote a beginner triathlete book at some point. You should head over to your library (if it is open) or check out via Amazon. There will be all the info you need.

Good luck, and welcome to triathlon.
