This is not an easy task, especially for the “9-to-5er” with family. But you can do it – all without sacrificing your marriage, job or family.

Triathletes, because of their ambitious nature, constantly have their sights on new goals. For many, that usually means racing in a Half-Ironman, and eventually an Ironman (admit it, you know that competing in these races are in the back of your mind – even if they’re just a flickering thought at this point).


In Part I of this series, we looked at how the average “9-to5-er” can fit triathlon training into their life without giving the other important areas of their life, such as family and work.


However, the training program for Part I focused on training for Sprint and Olympic distances. Training for longer distance triathlon events is a little trickier. They take more time. You’ll have to double your training from Part I.
