Coach Jimmy applies the same dedication and thoughtfulness to your training plan that he applied to his own training plan during his 20 years as one of the world’s top professional triathletes. Balance was a key to Coach Jimmy’s long term success and now, as a husband and father of two children, you can be sure that your program will integrate your specific needs – whether you’re a competitive triathlete or first timer.
If the holidays pinch your training time, try not to stress about it or get angry at the who’s and what’s that are the source of your stress. Remember that working out is a stress reliever. Instead, shorten the workouts up, increase the intensity a tad, and try to do a little bit each day. Never underestimate the value of a 15-20’ run or a 30-60’ spin - it all adds up and builds on “big picture” consistency.
On the other hand, if the holidays allow you a bit more workout time than usual - take advantage and add volume to your standard routine. Just remember (generally speaking) to tone the intensity down a little to account for the added workload.
