    We have been living in this “social distanced” world for most of 2020. While we have been diligent to follow the mandates and regulations, we are also eager to begin training with others again. Some of you reading this might already be back into your pre-COVID routine. Many others are likely easing slowly back to group activities we know and love.

    During the coronavirus pandemic and in a world that’s social distancing, there’s not a lot of triathlon activity to get energized about with race delays and cancellations. Like many sport fans, I’m turning to EPSN and IRONMAN drawing inspiration from past performances, iconic finishes and underdogs taking the win.  As I reflect on my greatest accomplishment in my 20+ years of triathlon, I thought I’d share the memory.

    Cycling indoors offers many advantages such as flexibility of schedule, safety, and a bit of selfishness that you can do your workout on your terms. Drawbacks do exist. The primary drawback is the lack of terrain. When you’re riding outdoors and in races, you will encounter hills in most areas where you ride. This workout is intended to provide you an opportunity to work on your strength for crushing those hills when you get outside. For those of you living in flat areas of the world, you may want to use this workout several times throughout your training sequence so you can be competitive with those who have the benefit of a variety of terrains.

    Fartlek, yes, we said it. It’s a funny word in the English language and it’s supposed to be fun. This Swedish term means “speed play” and is a form of interval or speed training. Fartlek is an effective way of improving your running speed and endurance involves changing your pace throughout the workout alternating between fast segments and slow jogs. By adding this to your workout once a week, you can start to focus on improving that burst of energy necessary for getting closer to the podium.

    Running outside is a great way to reconnect with the world and that fresh air is so … well, refreshing! If you do not have access to a track or don’t have a GPS watch to guide you through the workout, completing track and interval workouts intimidate some. That doesn’t mean you can’t work on your speed anyways. Good old-fashioned timed intervals are just as effective as a distance workout. Of course, having the feedback of time and distance provides a little more gratification for some.

    Cardio is great, but strength helps to build those muscles necessary to propel you forward!

    Track Workouts for people who hate track workouts

    I grew up a swimmer and hated to run. As I got older, I discovered that running was a cheap, easy way to stay in shape. That still didn’t make me love it.

    About 10 years ago, a friend of mine who ran marathons was getting burnt out. She asked me if I would run with her at the track at our kids’ school as we lived far from each other.  We invited some other runners and now, ten years later, we are still doing weekly track workouts, come rain or shine.
