Question of the Week “How can I reduce my training time to get max results?”

Coach Brad,
Yesterday I completed my first Ironman 70.3 (actually 69.1 because the swim got cancelled) but I got a horrible time. I don’t think I prepared enough. I workout 5 to 6 times (swim, bike, run) but my workouts have to be 45-60 minutes long because I work full time, go to school full time and I have 2 small children. Not making excuses, just need to know what kind of workouts I can do that will get ready for the next one. Thanks, man. –¬†Camille

Camille; that is a good question.  I would do the following things.
I would start working out at home and add in some bodyweight and simple exercises.

QUESTION: Coach, what do you like to add to your workout shakes?

ANSWER: I use Athletic Greens in our shakes. It’s got tons of great nutrition—vitamins and minerals. Plus it mixes up easy in milk or water.
