MANILA, Philippines – Amanda, Juls and Ton sign up for TriUnited 4 in November 22. This triathlon will require them to swim 600 meters, bike 30 kilometers, and then run 5 kilometers to the finish line.
They all know how to swim, bike, and run but have never tried to do it at those distances, let alone do three activities one after the other.
The first step was to find out where their fitness base is in all three sports.
Nervous and excited, Ton, Juls and Amanda head out to Fitness First in SM Aura to do a Triathlon Base Assessment under Coach Ige Lopez.
The test was to swim 200 meters, bike 10 kilometres and run 3 kilometres as fast as they can.
How did they do? Find out here. And follow their road to Tri in the next webisodes of Gameplan. – Rappler.com
