Given I'm still training for a half marathon, I'd say the easiest is the running. However I'm currently distance running instead of sprinting, so things will change.

I used to swim a lot when I was young like 10-14. As my sister was a national swimmer and was swimming 8 days a week so I was taken to the pool as well, I quit because I wasnt really ever successful looking back at my times from when I was young and now that I'm 6'3 with a 78 inch reach... I shouldn't have stopped... But the area I lived in was so good I never won, so I lost interest, had I have been brought up, pretty much anywhere else in the country, I too would have been a national swimmer.

I haven't swam in 7 years but I know what I'm doing so its not the hardest!

The hardest is cycling haha, I hate it! Lol, Ive had to order a new bike because I blame my bike for why I hate it so much haha! I had it when I was 13, so it's small, heavy and an off road bike, hopefully the new one will come soon though

But as of right now, I have to say cycling
