Ahead of the Ironman competition, which begins this Saturday (7th May 2022) we have delved into what it means to see or be involved in a triathlon in your dreamscape.

To dream about a triathlon suggests you are taking on a lot in your waking hours. 

Perhaps you have done the prep work for something, but it’s not sufficient or up to someone else’s high standards. If you had to give up halfway through a triathlon in your dream- it proves that more training or forethought is required in your waking hours. Whatever you have taken on can’t be done half heartedly, so if you are intent on reaching the finish line, you need to put in the effort while you still can. 

If you have passed this point, use this as a learning curve that you took on too much for your skill set or mindset at the time. Armed with this knowledge, when the opportunity presents itself again, things can be very different. 

If you were able to complete the triathlon, you have a lot going on in your life, but you are coping and finishing everything you put your mind to, even if it’s taking its toll on you. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done- it’s not been easy but you have powered through. 

A triathlon could indicate a lack of respite in between tasks in your waking hours. You may be more than happy or qualified to do certain things but you appreciate and need a rest before you start the next point on your to-do list. If there are people in your life who don't recognise this, it might be time to tell them that some down time is a necessity for you or you won’t be able to do what is asked.

Perhaps you are someone who can turn their hand to many different things- you are a jack of all trades. While this is admirable, if you want to specialise in something, it may be wise to invest more of yourself in one pursuit rather than dividing up your time between lots of little things. If you want to hone your skill, something has to give as you are spreading yourself too thinly. 

Do you struggle to focus on one thing or stick with something for a period of time? Maybe you won’t commit to someone romantically, or perhaps you don’t stay in jobs for any length of time; do you find it challenging to settle on one hobby and flit between different ones? If so, have you reached a time in your life when this is no longer appropriate? Or do you spend time with people who want the exact opposite of your hopes and dreams? If so, maybe it’s prudent to distance yourself from those whose company you no longer respect. 

The dream could be telling you that you are putting all your eggs in one basket. You are good at more than one thing, in fact you are very capable in many things, but you tend to gravitate towards just one. Is it time you branched out into something different to get out of your comfort zone? Who knows where it might take you.
