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.
Depending on where you live, riding in the summer heat is unavoidable. For a refreshing pick me up - when you stop at your favorite convenience store, fill a plastic bag full of ice from the drink machine. You can find plastic bags (or plastic gloves that will work) near food concessions, or better yet, bring your own. Put the ice filled plastic bag under your cycling jersey near the collar behind your neck. For added cooling, poke a few small holes in the bag. As the ice melts, cold revitalizing water will slowly drip down your back.
