Triathlon Workout: Cycle 2 (Olympic Distance) - Week 6, Day 7
Completing a triathlon takes strength, speed, endurance, and flexibility. Triathlon training is balanced, whole-body training. In other sports you may wind up building strength in some areas, while accruing weaknesses in others. Triathletes get body benefits from running, cycling, and swimming, and as a result are lean and fit from head to toe.
After the sprint-distance triathlon, many athletes have their sights set on an Olympic distance event. If that's your goal, then this comprehensive program is for you.
Workout description: Run, free run
Run without your heart rate monitor and, if possible, run a route you do not usually run. This run should be stress-free and enjoyable. Don't worry about your pace or heart rate, just go out and remember why you love running. If you are a little over or under time don't worry about it.
