For the past 9 months, practically everyone who knows even the tiniest bit about me has been asking what I'm training for these days (because even the most casual acquaintance knows I'm a training/racing freak). Until last week the answer has been: nothing. To most triathletes, this means I've had nothing to live for! It is a weird answer for me to give considering that for the past 10 years I have trained for and completed in multiple races per year. So how did I decide that NOT racing was a good idea?

Picking out the best gifts for a triathlete can be tough. Tri’s are known for being gear-heads—they constantly have their ear to the pavement for the newest and greatest when it comes to equipment, whether it’s a new bike, new running shoes, or new swim gear.Although these tri gifts aren’t super fancy, like a cool new triathlon watch or a $5,000 road bike, they are timeless. More importantly, they will help your triathlete compete like a boss.Here are some gift ideas for triathletes:

Working It Out
So, you’ve taken the big step, and put down the cash for the registration of your very first triathlon. While thinking and dreaming about it—before there was any real commitment involved—was easy and fun. Now that it’s become real, and the days are steadily evaporating until race day, you are starting to feel the rising knot of doubt and fear.

Sunday is typically a day of rest. I often melt into the couch to vegetate, ignoring text messages and phone calls, and making no plans to spend the day with anyone anywhere. Yesterday was an exception.  A remarkable exception at that.

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. Here’s what I learned in my training this year:

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?

Has anyone ever started a fitness challenge? I would like to hear about it!I will be participating in my first Triathlon in October. I have raced in different obstacle races and running races but never a triathlon. First off there is a novice race I will try out on August 9th to get my feet wet on what it will be like to transition between swimming, biking and running.Are there any other suggestions on what I should do to prepare?
