JESSE JAMES JAMNIK: H O W T O T R Y- AT H L O N S
• A triathlon is a challenge to even the most seasoned athlete. Undergoing the strenuous efforts of biking, running and swimming will demand all of your focus to pass that finish line. • But where do you find time in your busy schedule to train for such an event?
• With the average triathlete logging an average of 10-15 hours of weekly training, and over 100 miles of indoor running, who can fit that level of activity into a busy work week? • Here are some easy ways to manage your weekly routine, and turn your work days into workouts…
• For James Decker, an insurance representative and 35-year-old triathlete, his morning commute became the start of his daily training regimen. • Though he specifically chose a home 12 miles from work for this very purpose, you can always substitute a short subway or taxi ride for a brisk walk.
• The extra activity will go far in preparing you for the miles of running a triathlon promises, and the exercise is a great way to stretch out before starting the day.
• If you lack the space for long runs or trips on a cycle, a stationary bike can be your best friend. • A recent study conducted on cyclists over 48 showed that performing cognitive tasks while using a stationary bike can improve distance times, with no negative effects to the task.
• Marathoning shows, watching the news, and reading work materials can all be done while pedaling away, all within the comfort of your own home. • Using a stationary bike not only enables you to take care of tasks while exercising, you’re also not subject to weather changes that would otherwise interrupt your training, putting you behind schedule.
• When asked where she fits training into her busy schedule, Stacy Creamer, vice-president and editor of Hachette books, says “If you can only do one thing, run.”
• Finding time to run either indoors or outside can dramatically improve your swimming in cycling, while being an easy to accomplish workout. • Whether you utilize running as a means to get to work, or as a way to share to road and socialize with other runners, putting your feet to the street is the most time-efficient way to train up for that coming triathlon.
• And what’s a better reward than completing a triathlon? Once you do one, you won’t want to stop. • Pushing your body into its best physical shape is not only good for your physical health, but for your mental health as well. • You will feel more determined in other aspects of your life knowing that you can truly accomplish anything if you commit to it.
