TriMinds: Off Season Training

Here in the triathlon world we don’t like to refer to it as the off-season because there is no “off” season. We’re either in or out of race season but that does not mean we’re not training hard.

In fact, training during the winter months is crucial to our performance come next race season. What you do now can make all the difference as you hope to make 2017 your best season ever, whether that means setting a personal best...qualifying for Kona...or whatever your goals may be.

Well, not to worry. We got you covered! We’ve put together a very special out season playlist that will help you start this year on track and ready to bring it in 2017!
