Default Starting Your Triathlon Training Calendar and Log

Setting up your triathlon training calendar and log can be the two most
important actions you take, perhaps more important than any swim intervals,
long rides, or morning runs you do.




Your Triathlon Training Calendar

Your training calendar can be a preprinted calendar, a poster board, an
appointment book, or a calendar software program that prints out customized
monthly grids. Just make sure that you have enough room to write down your
daily workouts. Your training calendar should also be on paper, as opposed
to just on a computer screen. Although a software program is great for
creating customized calendars, make sure it can print out monthly grids. You
want your training calendar to be within plain sight, not hidden away
somewhere on a computer hard drive. Dedicate a space for your
calendar-someplace that you know you'll see every day. Once you've chosen
your calendar and picked a place to put it, it's time to make the commitment
and put pen to calendar (scary, huh?).




Work Your Way Back From Race Day

First, write your race goal on your training calendar. How much time does
that give you to train properly? Again, take into account your current
fitness level and skills. If you need to reassess your race goal and set
your target on something more realistic, now is the time to do it.




Divide Your Calendar Into Phases

Although part II covers training in much more detail, you'll need to know a
little bit about what experts consider to be the optimal way to train.
Training in phases or cycles has long been considered the best way to
condition the body to the rigors of endurance exercise. Each phase has a
specific objective, and the workouts fulfill that objective.




Coaches and fitness experts don't always agree on the exact number of phases
and objectives (largely because training differs among sports and elite
athletes require more complex training plans). However, if you are a ....

How can you triathlon ppl stand jumping off yer bike and
running? On foot?

That's so bizarre.

OTOH I guess it's not so bizarre when one is riding
a bike while wearing a squish-ly wet Speedo, and
squishy shoes w/ no sox. Good luck with that. The CX
folx do much the same thing, but dress more snazzily.
Not so much body hair showin'. They're a tribe, too.
(Hi, Ryan :-) )


Triathlon is like basketball, badminton, ringette,
softball, croquet, or basketball -- a Women's game.

This is obviously a tongue-in-cheek troll.

But seriously -- the bike is the best. Run toward
the ligh- ... ermmm, the bike. Then hop on, and
ride up the strait & narrow to Nirvana. Swimming is
for the River Styx (don't pay the ferryman [Chris de Burgh)
and running is for Hades (bat outa hell [Meatloaf].)

The bike is the best.
Just get here, and
we'll do the rest.

I encourage women & men to parcipitate in whatever
sports they feel like getting involved in. Indulge
in, and share le joie de vivre.


cheers,
Tom
