When training for a triathlon, you obviously have to do plenty of swimming, biking and running. But there are a few other creative ways to get in a great triathlon training workout. Here are 5 of our favorite workouts:
Let’s start with the swim:
Here’s not one, but three Sprint Triathlon Swim Workouts. Each of these workouts will help you gain confidence in the water as well as improve your form, increase your endurance and make swimming laps a lot more interesting. (Do you loose count of your laps? Me too. Check out this AWESOME lap counter and you’ll never have to count laps again!)
Now let’s transition to a Swim/Run Brick:
When you think of a brick workout, you probably think of a bike/run brick. Here’s another great brick workout that will help you get a feel for what it’s like to run after swimming. This Swim/Run Brick Workout will allow your body to adjust from the last sport to the next so that on race day, you feel strong, confident and prepared.
Moving onto the bike:
If you’re like most triathletes, then chances are, you schedule your long bike rides on the weekends. However, sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate and it rains, leaving you stuck inside on a stationary bike or your bike trainer. If that happens, try this Conquer The Hill Bike Workout and you’ll get a great ride in no matter what the weather is like!
And now let’s run:
Although there is no running involved in this workout, it’s a great routine to help improve your running posture. Having good running posture will improve your form and help you feel stronger when you run.
