The winter has been very mild and Spring is almost here! You would think that all this warm weather would mean a better triathlon season due to more opportunities to train outside, but it's not that simple.
We have noticed that even though is has been an incredibly mild winter, most people are working out no differently than last winter when the weather was harsh. We think there are two reasons for this. First, no matter how warm the weather, it's still hard to get out of bed for an early workout when it's dark outside. Second, the warm weather has been so consistent that it's made us complacent instead of eager to take advantage of our good fortune.
We love that our group training model and individual coaching gives athletes two critical keys to combating these problems: a schedule and accountability
. You can accomplish so much with those two very simple things. But it starts today, not in March, April, or May.
If you are beating yourself up for not taking advantage of this great winter, consider coaching. We
can help you find your motivation again and make the most of the pre-season, whether it's as part of our group or with online coaching.
This is also the time of year to plan your race season. Please visit our blog to see our Middle Tennessee Triathlon Race Calendar
and learn why it's so helpful to start your planning now for summer.
Train smart. Train safe.
