Good afternoon. First time poster but long time viewer. I’m struggling to put a few concepts together in regards to proper training plans. Living in CO, we have so many activities to get involved in that I find it difficult to find the best method to balance all the interests. I’m a 36 year old, father of three and tend to use the easy excuse of not having enough time….I signed up for the Boulder half Iron Man in Aug so trying to get myself fully squared away on that while also trying to ensure I spend time at the climbing gym and up into the hills. Being outdoors and navigating up in the mountains is my true interest and I want to spend my available time learning new skills and applicable fitness but I also find the need to ensure I’m in the pool or on the trainer with the road bike. I think both domains might help each other but I’m at a point where I don’t want to be basically ok at different sports but rather, increase my skill set and fitness and grow in the mountaineering sport. I don’t believe I will do much more in the Tri arena after the IM…more of a personal and fun challenge.
Sorry for my rambling but was curious if anyone was following any of the programs here and also combining anything related to Triathlon type training requirements. Thanks for your time and I have really enjoyed reading yalls posts and responses. Great place for information and support. Have a great rest of your weekend.
