My checklist for an olympic-distance triathlon

Nozbe

Continuing last week’s tradition of sending you fitness advice, here’s mine. A little over 2 years ago I decided to really get back in shape. I was already running 10-15km per week but after a knee injury I decided to lose weight and start doing other sports than just jogging. Thanks to the “Slow carb diet” I lost 8kg / 16lbs and thanks to a friend who convinced me to give it a shot, in 2014 I completed 2 sprint-distance triathlons and 1 Olympic-distance triathlon. The last one became my perfect distance: 1,5km swim, 40km (24.9 miles) bike ride and 10km (6.2 miles) run. A little under 3 hours of fun. Last year I did two of those and this year I already did one in April, I’ll do next one this coming Sunday and the third one in September. Now, the key to getting it right, besides being in shape, is a great packing list, because these are three different sports you have to do with only a minute to change between them, so you better have everything in place. That’s why while preparing to my last triathlon I decided to create this handy packing list for both me and you:

Thanks to our cool Nozbe.how shared template system I created this checklist as a project template in Nozbe so you can either open it and use right away or import to your Nozbe account.

If you’re curious about some of the details about why I structured this template the way I did, here goes:

6 training plans for 10k distance

Nozbe As you probably know we have some very active members on the Nozbe team. Some of us just run for fun or play football, while some train for triathlons… they’re very ambitious. That’s why we want to share our athletic knowledge with you. Today we’re starting with training plans for a 10k run. These aren’t random numbers and distances to train with. These plans were prepared based on the experience of a runner with a 10k PR (personal record) below 29 minutes and his marathon PR is below 2 hours and 12 minutes.
