The Busy Athlete - An Oxymoron?

The Busy Athlete - An Oxymoron?

The Busy Athlete - An Oxymoron? 

          The busy athlete, wait a moment…we are all busy and the word “busy” is more of an oxymoron nowadays. We challenge you to find someone that claims they’re “not busy” and doubt that you will be able to come across such an individual.  Add some training sessions into your schedule like the familiar “swim/bike/run” workouts and many athletes are juggling a pretty hectic schedule. In addition, most would like to improve their performance without compromising health, family, friends and work. How do you do it without feeling guilty when you missed a workout, cut it short for other commitments, or did not read the fine print in the description because you were in a hurry? How do you best direct these conversations in your head?

          Most athletes dedicate valuable time, energy, and money on their goal of crossing the finish line faster than the previous time. You hope that the odds are stacked in your favor, especially with a light bike, aerodynamic helmet, tight kit, power meter and other techno-gadgets, a training and nutrition/hydration plan.  You think with this level of attention to detail you got it down, but…Yes, there is a but, because without proper recovery, sleep and healthy daily eating habits your “devotion” is for not & even the best laid plans for a great race can simply disappear.
