A “Triathlon” is a three-part sport discipline that consists of swimming, cycling and running. All three sports clubbed together are considered as one event with athletes participating in having to complete all three in a specified period. It was started in 1970 in Track clubs off San Diego as an alternative workout for the track athletes.
It was only in 1989 that the sport got an Olympic status and got featured in the 2000 Sydney Olympic for the first time. Since then the sport has become very popular around the world. Some of the famous Triathlons around the world are Ironman Arizona, Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, Alaskaman Xtreme Triathlon and Ironman Lake Placid. It is a very gruelling race since it has three different parts to it. A full triathlon consists of 3.8 km of a swim, 180 km of a bike ride and 42 km of run.
So a person who is training for triathlons needs to be on a rich carbohydrate diet, as carbs will provide him with the ample energy to take him through the race. On average, a person burns about 10,000 to 11,000 calories in an Ironman triathlon. It also depends upon their fat percentage in the body and weight. So, training for such an event which lasts around 15 hours one requires to be in their best shape and loaded with carbs.
