The “9-to-5ers” Triathlon Training Program (Sprint and Olympic Distances)
You’ll find you can work these general routines around your work and family commitments, while keeping yourself fit enough for Sprint or Olympic triathlon distances.
Maybe my story’s a lot like yours. By the end of my twenties, I’d found myself in an 8-to-6 (usually 8-to-8) office job. I was drinking coffee by the truckload and eating out everyday for lunch . . . either with coworkers at some all-you-can-eat buffet, or by grabbing value meals through a drive-through.
Evenings were spent with my beautiful wife. We’d try to eat healthy, but usually ended up cooking something from a box or ordering out. Over the course of a year, I gained forty pounds. I couldn’t carry groceries upstairs as easily. My back started hurting.
I wanted to get back in shape. I just wasn’t sure how. Or specifically . . . when. When did I have the time to fit exercise into my schedule?
Assumptions and Rules
The “9-to-5ers” Triathlon Program is something I developed to get my life back on track. This program’s been tailored a little since its beginning – improved on a little year by year as some USAT triathlon coaches and NCSA trainers have taken a look at it and suggested changes where needed. [.....]
