What else do you guys do? I know that we all have our tri training schedules, but what else is there? personally, I maountain bike and single speed. Found that the single speeding helps me on hills where I can pass people becuase of the ability to run a harder gear as well as great cardio work! Anyone else found other cross tarining that really helps? Say it loud, Say it Proud!

Triathlon training already takes up most of my free time.

before i got hooked to cycling and tris i was a gym addict. i still lift a lot (probably more than i should be doing) but i can't help it. sometimes i think it makes me faster.

training takes up most of my time. especially around race times i don't have the energy to pursue anything else.

but most of all, when i do physical activity it has to be physically intense and mentally challenging. honestly, triathlon training is the most intense i've pursued yet.
Surfing and Baketball, both great

But they probably don't help with the tri's much. I just sub surfing for swimming (swimming is a bit stale to me).
