What To Do After Triathlon Season Ends

This week, Lana Burl runs down some of the most common questions triathletes have about the “off” season. When you’re training toward a goal race, your focus and the steps you need to take are usually well-defined, but after the last race of the year its easy to do too little, too much, or have no plan.

Some topics we talked about include:

  • What does a “structured” off season look like?
  • Should you try Crossfit?
  • Does the easy/intensity split of 80/20 change over the winter?
  • How do you maintain a base-level fitness?
  • What are some good ways to track that base-level fitness?
  • How do your nutrition requirements change in the off season?
  • How do you give yourself a good mental break?

We also referenced some information from other previous podcasts, check them out here:
