So yeah, it's looking more and more like I might be doing an Olympic distance triathlon this fall. I've was putting together a schedule yesterday when I realized that it would be nearly impossible to follow. My job at nTelos is awesome but the schedule is really unpredictable. You just never know when 3G or MMS will need some TLC. Add that to being a new father and well, you get the picture. Then it dawned on me. Why bother with a schedule at all?

I know what I need to do. I need to swim, bike, run and do strength training. Right now I want to focus on running and cycling for about 4 weeks. So what I have done is created a "to-do" list of the 10 exercises. I have 14 days to "completed" these exercises. So, instead of running on Monday and Biking on Tuesday and following a schedule, I check off the exercises as I do them.

Here is an example list of what I am doing within the next 14 days.

•2 mile run.
•2 mile run.
•2 mile run.
•2 mile run.
•15 mile bike.
•15 mile bike.
•15 mile bike.
•strength training (circuit).
•strength training (circuit).
•strength training (circuit).

So basically I create a check list and give myself 14 days to complete these 10 workouts. One day it might rain, so I do strength. Another day I might have off because I worked the night before, perfect for biking. This lets you stay on task while working out in the confines of a busy or unpredictable schedule.

  2. It is very true, if you ditch your fitness schedule and not follow in a proper way, it is completely harmful for you. A fitness trainer prepares a fitness chart accord to your physique and your capability, if you are not following that than you are wasting your time and money. If you want a perfect body shape than you have to strictly followed your diet chart and gym schedule.
