• 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…

• 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.
