Tips From An Ironman

Maybe you're not running in an Ironman event, but the advice from Peter Reid is good.

Most of us will never compete in Ironman events. However, many of us will prepare for some type of an endurance event whether it be a 5K or an Olympic-distance triathlon. Ironman triathlete Peter Reid has some advice on www.triathlete.com that applies to all of us who are doing one of these events and everything in between.

I don't agree with all of his advice, but some of it is great. For example, I don't agree with "training alone". I have always advocated training with others who will support your endeavors and keep you accountable. There's ALWAYS time to train alone. Making investments in the right equipment and training for a race, on the other hand are pieces of good advice.

Take a look and see what applies to you.
