Ok triathlon athletes (this blog is also for biathlons, marathon, and other races you compete in) at this point you should be well within your conditioning phase. Continue with your squats, lunges, single leg touchdowns and core training. It’s time to add some speed training.
They say you don’t learn as much from when things go right as when they go wrong. I can’t agree more. This was my second year competing in triathlons, and while I placed in 4/6 races last year and 2/5 this year, I feel so much more accomplished at the end of this season.

I have been training for my first triathlon and it has brought on different challenges. One of my main challenges has been to fit in swimming training. I am not a fan of public pools and do not live to close to a lake where I can train during the week. I have added rowing into my routine and try to row about 6000 meters every couple days. Will this work? Or are there better directions to go then rowing?
