training plans

Postby MikayP » Mon May 31, 2010 3:21 am

i train a whole lot in my view for triathlon and never really had a plan to work with. it was basically 6 days of doing something I havent done lately w/ a little emphasis on the discipline that im weakest at (cycling). but lately ive been getting into looking at training plans and realize that this kind of structure can really help me with working hard on the hard days and taking it easy on the rest days.

does anyone else use training plans for their sport of choice and has it helped you a lot in your view?

also if anyone has any good triathlon plans that they are using let me know. particularly in 1/2 ironman. i just got matt fitzgeralds book on triathlete training schedules and it looks like a lot of time was made for each schedule which is good

I am a former football player ( american style) so I had a serious weightlifting and running plan..

it worked

As a fitness runner , marathoner and exercise enthusiast I always hav plans even if I am quite casual about the races.

Allows me to maintain in the offseason and buildup safely and easily for 13, 26 to 50k races.

I have a (sprint) triathlon training schedule that I follow during the summer, and a swim race schedule I follow (more or less) in the winter. I'll post more when I have a bit more time!
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
