As I mentioned in my previous post, it’s off season. That means a time to disconnect and refocus. A lot of Multisport Athletes like to totally disconnect from their sport. Cross train in other sports like soccer, skiing, mountain biking or hiking. I enjoy that too, but one of the greatest
things this sport has to offer for me is that I enjoy these sports individually and it is my way to disconnect and unwind from life. So my off season looks similar to my in season, but it’s all about reconnecting to the joy of each sport. I may do a running race in the off season, but I like to just go for a run, push the stroller around, cruise on my bike. All without the need for structure. That’s my off season.
Somewhere here in the next few months I’ll add in a bit more distance to start my base training again and hit the weight room. I also am focusing on losing a few pounds this winter too. I find it a lot easier to focus on that in the off season as trying to limit calorie intake while training hard is not a good combination. I end up tired and lethargic which in turn hurts my performance. Some people can do that, but not me.
What does your off season look like?
