With 3 sports, plus transitions, triathlon training is not the easiest thing to squeeze into a time-crunched schedule. But if work or life is taking over more time these days, do you have to abandon the sport?
It CAN be done! Now, do I think you can typically get better results with more training time? Yes! But don’t let limited time keep you from racing triathlons. If you’re an experienced athlete – someone who’s had some time on the bike under their belt, built up a good running base, and spent some time in the pool – this advice is for you.
Watch this week’s video to find out my approach:
Highlights from the video:
- I recommend a minimum of 2 workouts per sport for the experienced, time-pressed athlete (similar to my advice for beginners last week)
- For experienced athletes, focus on one quality workout and one longer workout in each sport
- This approach does have a higher risk of injury, so pay special attention to how your body is responding
- Recovery is REALLY important – foam rolling & stretches should be prioritized!
- This is a situation where a coach may be a smart idea – especially since you’re already short on time.
