Yup, you read it right. Training is EASY. How? When you train EASY. It sounds so simple yet most of the time it’s very hard to do.
Endurance sports require a perfect blend of volume and intensity. Our competitive edge always tries to eke out a bit more out of our training to be faster. More often, that actually harms our progress instead of gaining momentum. Here are some of the training mistakes you should avoid, part 2.
Are you looking to take up running? Do you feel the urge to stay healthy? Are you an intermediate runner and hoping to take your performance to the next level?

Training is a sport that requires a lot of dedication, many hours of training, and good planning. Most triathletes take their training seriously.

There are various challenges in triathlon but the one which haunts most aspiring triathletes is the fear of swimming. It’s natural for those who can’t swim and but even those who can swim, they too get panicked in the water. Fear not, you may be the most novice swimmer yet you can master it very quickly.

Very often people ask me: “How long does it take to return to training after an injury?” Or “How can I get my fitness back?” The frustration is very typical, and rightly so. Months and months of hard work can so easily be undone in a matter of moments. The good thing is you can go back to your previous fitness.
