Last weekend, A.I.P athletes undertook the Sunshine Coast Ironman 70.3 Triathlon.
Now this is not everyone’s cup of tea, but the adaptibility fitness required of such training is so useful for general health, so we’ve created a shorter circuit based triathlon with multiple rounds for you to practice pace training and quick muscle adaption. This is a challenge for most people – as quick adaption between muscle groups and cardiovascular activity is not something that’s often part of a training regime.
Our second program is a 4 – step sequence to help you focus your mind. We’re going to be honest here, in the swim leg of the Ironman, the conditions were rough, raining, and our wetsuit wasn’t sitting quite right – which caused a near panic state in the first 300m of the event. This mindset is something we employ nearly every training session and it saved us from withdrawing in the swim, allowing us to focus and get the head back in the game. We hope you find it useful.
