Ironman Triathlon: Distance Running, Swimming and Biking in One
If climbing a few flights of stairs already leaves you panting at the top step, then you would no doubt pass out if you try to finish even the first leg of the Ironman Triathlon—a combination race of long distance running, swimming, and biking, which must be finished all in a row by an individual.

What is Distance Running?
Distance running, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica is any foot race that ranges from 3,000 meters to 42,195 kilometers (basic length for marathon). It includes sprints, middle distance, long distance, marathon, ultra running, and multiday running. Olympic events are held on track with length ranges between 5,000 to 10,000-metre races and marathons are held on roads. However, in the book Running, John A. Hawley qualified events from 800 to 5,000 m as 'middle distance' and events at 10,000 m or longer as 'distance' races. Races longer than 42.2 km are considered 'ultra-distance.'

Training for Distance Running
Distance running is a very popular activity. It isn't just an effective endeavor for physical fitness. It is also a great way to make acquaintances and meet new friends. However, one can't just merely step into the world of distance runners without being prepared for the sport—whether that's physical or mental preparation. This is why training is important.
