Ultra Runner Takes on Triathlon – What Now?


There are many ultra runners that do triathlons for variety in their lives, and many triathletes that run ultras for the same reason.

Understandably, you will not find an online program that builds switching from ultra to tri and back – you will need to work with your coach for that. One thing that I have picked up is the trend line of cardio fitness levels that matches what is needed for various ultra distances to a corresponding triathlon distance.

This video discusses that correlation and gives you the ability to work out what type of triathlon is possible for you based on what you are currently doing as an ultra athlete.
