Which triathlon race do you do predominantly?
OptionResults
Sprint
Oly
HIM
IM
I do a pretty even mix of two or more.

I'm interested to see what race triathletes tend toward.

I said HIM, but it's hard to say without a caveat. My A races have all been HIMs (3) but in doing them, I have done 7 olys. So technically I "do" olys predominantly, but I treat them as brick workouts.

I voted Oly, but I really do Xterras almost exclusively.

The distances are in between Sprints and Olys, although most are closer to Olys. But finish times are closer to those of Olys.

As a triathlete, I do primarily sprints, but most of my racing are duathlons...

I voted Oly, but I finish/place better in HIM. I'd do more HIM and maybe IM if the cost wasn't so high.

I took the even mix.  If I really took the time to look at my races the sprints would probably outnumber the Oly's  --but I like both distances for different reasons.  Tried to train for a HIM a few years ago and spent most of the season either sick or injured.  Haven't had the nerve to try again.

I said sprint but the only race I'm doing this year is an IM.....basically, my body is pizzed off at my brain for signing it up for an IM so it refuses to do any other races.

I like HIM the most because the training doesn't take over your life like IM training and it's long enough to get my "money's worth" ... if I'm going to schlep everything over, I want to be there a few hours.

Second year, first IM, planning on 1 IM, 2-3 HIM, 1+ Oly and 1+ Sprint. I like them all. I like the pushing of the Sprints and Olys. This year it will be 1 IM, 3 HIM, 1 Oly, 1 Sprint. Next year I already have planned 1 IM and 1 HIM, and will be adding more.

I'm going to let you in on how to get faster by doing nothing. Well, not exactly nothing, but you won't have to raise your heart rate, put out 300 watts, or really even break a sweat.

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"
