Walang Training Mula Nung Pandemic! How to Get Back in Shape for 2023


Getting back into shape and training for a triathlon after a couple of years off can be a daunting task, but it is definitely achievable with some patience, consistency, and dedication.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Start slow: Don’t try to jump back into your old training routine right away. Your body needs time to adjust to the increased activity and intensity, so it’s important to start slow and gradually build up your training volume and intensity.
  2. Focus on your foundation: Before you start training for a triathlon, it’s important to build a solid foundation of general fitness. This means focusing on exercises that target multiple muscle groups and improve your overall strength, endurance, and flexibility. This can include activities such as running, cycling, swimming, and strength training.
  3. Set realistic goals: It’s important to set realistic goals for yourself, both in terms of your training volume and the race distance you are targeting. If you have been away from triathlon training for a couple of years, it might not be realistic to jump straight into an Ironman. Instead, consider starting with a shorter distance race, such as a sprint or Olympic triathlon, and gradually working your way up to longer distances as you build up your endurance and strength.
  4. Find a support system: Training for a triathlon can be a challenging and time-consuming process, so it’s important to have a support system to help you stay motivated and on track. This could be a coach, a training partner, or a supportive group of friends or family members.
  5. Don’t be afraid to seek professional help: If you are struggling to get back into shape or are experiencing any injuries or other setbacks, it can be helpful to seek the guidance of a professional. This could be a personal trainer, a coach, a physical therapist, or a sports medicine doctor. They can help you design a training plan that is tailored to your specific needs and goals, and can provide guidance and support to help you stay on track.

By following these tips and staying consistent with your training, you will be well on your way to getting back in shape and training for your next triathlon. Remember to be patient, listen to your body, and don’t be afraid to seek help when you need it. With hard work and dedication, you can achieve your goals and get back to competing in the sport you love.
