How Triathletes Can Balance Family and Training

Many triathletes with families spend a lot of their time trying to figure out how they are going to fit their workouts into their busy lives as they do actually executing their workouts. Being overwhelmed with work, family and training commitments may sometimes lead to an inability to take a step back and organize your life. This early bird training lets you get in six hours of training in four days, plus you aren’t using up your lunch hour or after work time that can be spent at home helping out your spouse or going over homework with your kids. Another option is to include your family in the workout. Your family gives you the appropriate head start and you get your ride in, the family meets you at set meeting point. It’s great bonding time and your kids will benefit as they see you keeping fit, striving for goals and it will give them inspiration. Another option for keeping the balance would be running or cycling to a child’s game. The best advice that I can give you is to get everyone in your family on board as you try to balance all the responsibilities in your life. Including your family in your goals and allowing them to take part in helping you achieve them will go a long way toward keeping your family and training as balanced as possible. There is no perfect situation and very rarely does it go well all the time, but making the effort to keep everyone happy will usually lead to less conflicts with your family.

Self-publishing Stories

A mother and triathlon athlete shares her stories and those of others who balance the demands of their sport and family obligations in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Since her first triathlon in 2001, author Debra Hodgett has been hooked on the physically and mentally demanding sport, and she’s not alone. This new book features stories and strategies for balancing triathlete training and racing with family responsibilities. Visiting their vacation home in southern Illinois allows Hodgett long bike rides and the chance to rescue turtles, which fit conveniently in her bike shorts or bike shirt pocket. Hodgett offers quick solutions: wear a ponytail and extra wide headband to disguise sweaty hair, put on a cute jogging outfit over stinky workout clothes, throw on a strapless cotton dress after hitting the pool, and apply makeup while sitting at red lights. Author Debra Hodgett began running track in middle school and added cross-country running in college at Olivet Nazarene University. Hodgett earned a master’s degree in gerontology from Concordia University and trained to become a hospice volunteer. Publishing, LLC.

A Big Fat Triathlon Blog: 2013

I am not saying that life is bad, because by no means is it, it is just SO busy! Greeks tend to work to live unlike the American live to work, but I guess in my case you can’t take the American out of America. Be at school around 8:30.-9:00-3:45 at school with the kids. 3:34-5:00ish at school getting work done, planning, correcting…you name it. 8:00 eat dinner and sometimes do a little more work or relax and watch something online. I also don’t have to work out…really I don’t but if you know me and I can’t work out, you don’t want to be around me. I just crutched to school… I was not a very friendly person. I don’t know how my boyfriend at the time put up with me…he is a saint…But this is true, I don’t need to work out this much…I just want to continue my success as a triathlete. During the work day I get a lot more breaks than when I taught in the States, but they go by so fast!! I do like things to be in order, but I don’t consider my self a perfectionist by any means, because I am not at all perfect. 1 One of the parents from my class is from Palmerston North, a smallish town in New Zealand where I studied abroad my junior year! #2 Another parent in my class lived in Visalia, where my sister lives, for a year in college. Again Visaila is a smallish city in California that you wouldn’t really go to unless you lived there.
