Training for Triathlons and Prospecting is the Same

The similarities between endurance athletic events like the Triathlon and Prospecting are almost scary.

I had no idea they were so much a like when I decided that I should run Triathlons.

It just seemed that this old body needed some rejuvenation, and triathlons aren't as boring as just running forever, they add the possibility of drowning or crashing your bike!

Anyway, the only way to train for endurance sports like swimming, bic ... Bill Truax

You Can Have It All (Just Not At The Same Time)

I was glancing at a local paper recently when an ad for a nearby health club caught my attention.

There was a picture of an attractive, well-dressed woman who appeared to be pregnant.

The ad started off by giving her first name and followed with a list of the essential elements of her life, including the fact that she has been married for 12 years, has 2 kids (with another on the way) and owns her own business.

The message of the ad was that not only does she take car ... Andrea Hayhurst

Sports Injuries Can Sideline Your Training

What is a Triathlon and how can I train for it?

Triathlon Focuses on Three Sports

A triathlon is an athletic event that includes swimming, running, and cycling.

The triathlete therefore must focus his or her training on all three parts.

There are actually five different lengths of triathlons; they range from short and doable to crazy-longTraining requirements increase as the triathlete works his or her way up the food chain.

A sprint version requires the triathlete to swim � mile, bike 12.4 miles and ... Dale Lawrence

Running a marathon in a Triathlon? Why is it last?

Running is the last event in an Ironman

In 1974, when the San Diego Track Club held the first one in modern history, triathletes would run first, than bike, and then swam.

Running came first because it was what came naturally to the athletes at the time; that�s all they did back then, run around.

Back in Greek times, the term triathlon just meant a collection of three athletic events; they didn�t have to be the three that we use nowRun event switched fro ... Dale Lawrence

Swimming techniques can improve your Triathlon time

Swimming Efficiently Requires Vessel Shaping

In order to improve their swimming times, athletes competing in a Triathlon should focus on their vessel shaping.

Usually a triathlete will focus on increasing their propulsion through the water, giving their body alignment little or no thoughtStudies show that proper technique can increase swim time up to 50% faster.

Bill Boomer, swim coach for University of Rochester in New York, believes that vessel shaping ... Dale Lawrence

Maximum Cardio

Depending on your goals and body type, different amounts of cardio may be required.

A lean �hard-gainer� trying to add mass may benefit from only one or two cardiovascular sessions per week.

On the other hand, someone like myself who is extremely prone to storing fat and sensitive to carbohydrates may require 3 or more sessions in order to maintain peak physique.

Who Needs a Coach?

The athletes that are most hesitant to obtain a coach could often benefit the most.

A common perception is that coaching is for "serious" athletes only.

In actuality, anyone who wants to work toward a physical goal, or reach their true potential can benefit greatly from coaching.

A proper foundation for beginners is crucial so that bad form is not carried forward and made bad habit.

Many athletes in hindsight wish they had the benefit of coaching earlier in their career... .

Sport encourages the integration of the whole organism because it is necessary to think as we move and plan ahead.

In performing each movement in response to the run of play, we use mechanisms that nature evolved for the purpose of survival in a hostile world.
