Busy Days & Training Strategies


Busy, busy!  Being the sole Analyst at work and with a number of large projects I am leading certainly fills my mind with things to do.  Keeping up with this quarter’s training plan takes up quite a bit more time as well.

Instead of training an average of 4.5 hours per week, I am now averaging upwards of 6.5 hours per week.  Last week topped out at 7.5.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t leave me much time for blogging.  I have so many things to share with the fitness and triathlon community, it is a shame and makes me quite sad.

On that note, what are some of the strategies that you use to squeeze training in amongst your other responsibilities?

    Congrats on the 10-miler! It was my first too, farthest I’ve ever gone. I finished just ahead of you. Thanks for keeping me going in that last mile.

    I haven’t figured out a training strategy yet. I’ve tried getting up early but that doesn’t work well for me. I only run though. I can’t imagine trying to fit in biking and swimming too. Good luck!

      Hi Cathy,

      Thank you for the kind words.

      Small world! You were about 30 seconds ahead of me? Those last two miles were difficult, I was trained for 6 miles, not 10!

      Part of fun of training is planning out the week and making it all work. Very challenging!

      Hope to see you at future races!

      Cheers!
