There is a great article from the Weekend Triathlete blog. The blog is geared towards new triathletes. So if you’re new to the sport, this article is for you!
If you want to skip my thoughts, the link is at the foot of this post.
There are a lot more than 3 things you should know, but this is a great simple start. I would add something about nutrition, maybe. I was listening to a podcast with Tim Ferriss (author of 4 Hour Work Week and 4 Hour Body). He was talking about people getting into an activity to lose weight or just be more active. One of the things he said that resonated with me was the working out is an additive to your daily day, while nutrition is just a change. It’s the easiest way to make a difference in your fitness goals.
That being said, working out changes how your body feels the most. As much as we hate the feeling of being sore, this is ultimately what makes us feel like we’re making progress. All said, the article is perfect if you’re looking for 3 simple things to focus on.
