anyone done a trialthlon?

there's a "sprint" triathlon coming up in october i'd like to do.
swim 500 yards, ride 18.5 miles then run 5k.

sounds easy enough, then i got in the pool.
jesus christ, swimming more than a couple laps is HARD.

i've been trying to alternate low intensity cardio one day, high intensity the next. but i haven't been able to get a set schedule going.

'93 hatch
'91 ls1 coupe
'86 yamaha razz - pink, with nitrous
'78 puch maxi-luxe

I think I'd do ok until I had to run.....usually after riding my legs are all woosy! hahaha, swimming that far isn't bad, but swimmimg that far QUICKLY probably isn't fun....I've swam a mile once, but there was no time limit.
