How should I train for triathlon?

Specific Training for Triathletes

Do your triathlon training in conditions as close to those of the race as you can. If the running part is going to be on trails or roads, don't train on the track. If the swimming is in a lake or ocean, do at least some of your swimming drills there. And do your bike riding on hills or flats, as appropriate. Even if you live where it's flat, you can train for hills by riding road overpasses and riding into wind.
