Are You Training or Exercising?
Properly Preparing Makes All the Difference
Many people new to triathlon or running or cycling often think they are training for their goal event, but in actuality they’re really just doing a lot of exercising.
So, do you know the difference between training for something versus simply exercising?
Can I Do a Triathlon?
“Can I Do It?”
Can I do a triathlon? Can I finish the IRONMAN®? Can I run a MARATHON? Can I learn how to swim, bike or run FASTER?
This can be applied to ANYTHING, but we get it all the time. “Can I do it?” “IT” can be WHATEVER.
Here’s our response…
Becoming a better swimmer is a process. It takes time and it usually doesn’t happen over night. However, there are definitely a few ways to speed up the process.
We regularly get the question, “What and how long will it take… for me to learn how to swim (or improve my current swimming ability)?”
To help answer this question, we thought it would be fun to highlight one particular athlete whom we have been working with most recently. We’ll discuss the stroke improvements made, speed gains earned and the time it took to accomplish this.
Reframe Your Goals
Forced Extra Time
This is the time of year many of us get to put our fitness to the test and race. Unfortunately, it seems like each day another race is being canceled or postponed. Or maybe you’re injured.
Regardless, instead of letting this drive you nuts, it’s time to take control and REFRAME YOUR GOALS. Use this “forced extra time” to your advantage.
