  1. I train for Olympic lenght tri’s by riding to my running club in the spring summer and fall. It’s a 12.5 mile ride followed by a 7.2 mile run and a short swim in the summer months – then I ride home. I do this every Saturday and basically run a tri every weekend. By race time, I’m well used to the distances and I can just sit back and enjoy the thrill.

    Knowing going into the race that I’ve done the distance on a regular basis is a huge help.

    • That’s a great idea. I realized a while back how silly it was for me to drive to a trail to run or drive to the pool. Now when I have to leave my house to get a work out in, I pick somewhere I can run or bike to. It does make a difference on race day!
