1-2 days of riding/wk (2-10 hours).

Most of my base and strength training are done while running over the course of winter. During summer i focus my training on the swim, and use alternate days to maintain my run.

This prettymuch leaves saturday and sunday for bike and rest. I live and race in the flats so i dont feel too great a need for focusing too heavily on the bike.

My training consists of 3 days of swimming, 4 days of running, and 3 days of riding. On the running I have 1 long day, followed by a recovery day, then 2 medium days the rest of the week. Sometimes one of the medium days will be a high speed training day. On the ride I ride one long day, 1 easy (low heart rate day) and one high aerobic day. I preety much foolow the plans laid out in Mark Allen and Julie Moss book, "Workouts for Working People."

*Sit on my couch and watch TV.
*Go to work as a lifeguard.
*Hang out with friends.

repeat the workout everyday (the workout is not listed in any order)

Come race day, just get my butt going. It seemed to work. My biking has gone from 17 to 21 mph. My running have gone for 10 min/mile to 6 min/mile. And my 500 swim went from 7:15 to 6:29. This all happened within a 3-year span. There's no secret to it. Sure, if I train I might drop my times a little. But you have to think, is the little time decrease worth the hundreds of hours of training. For me, HELL NO!!! It's just a matter of priority. Is food, friends, sleep, money, and leisure more important than pain and sweat? I think the answer is obvious. The former seems more appealling than the latter. This is why I chose my training route.
