In this episode we are going to share 3 of the biggest misconceptions about training for a triathlon. These are things we’ve seen in the women we have coached in person in our Melbourne squad and via our online programs as well. You would be surprised how many of you share the same fears and concerns when you’re getting involved in the sport for the first time!

Misconception #1 - You need to train an insane amount of hours each week to complete a triathlon
Misconception #2 - you are too old to do a triathlon
One of my favourite things about the sport of triathlon is that there’s no age limit.
This ensures that you are competing against others within your age range and means you can be standing on the top of the podium as a 60 year old.
Age is just a number! And absolutely not indicative of what you can achieve.
If you’re still not convinced, google the Iron Nun - 88 years old, 45 full ironmans completed and counting. She’s incredible!
Misconception #3 - You need to be extremely fit to even start training for a triathlon
Out of all the women that have moved through our beginner course (over 500 women), at some point every single one of them has doubted if they were fit enough to complete the challenge.
If any of the misconceptions we've touched on here were holding you back from giving triathlon a go then I hope we've been able to convince you otherwise and encourage you to get involved!
