Instead of thinking about resolutions when it comes to exercise, set some specific goals that will challenge you throughout the year. Here are a few things to think about when it comes to goal setting.

The first time I “rode” up Canary Hill nearly 10 years ago, I walked huffing and puffing the whole way. Canary Hill is a short, but challenging hill in Hurley, NY. The climb is just over 1/3 of a mile, but it packs a wallop. It starts at 13%, a third of the way up the slope increases to 34%, at two thirds you get some respite at 27%, and then it finally levels out at the end.

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!

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:
