Time for Tri: Time Management During the School Year!

Below is a feature from YT Ambassador Brittany Abuhoff.

Now that school has started, I have not been able to train as much as I would like. Long training sessions have turned into hours in front of textbooks and eyes staring hopelessly at a computer screen. With years of experience of having to deal with this, I have come up with a solution: time management.

Time management is not something that you can learn, but it is something that involves a lot of experimenting- everyone’s different! My technique may not work for everyone and somebody else’s technique may not work for me.

Here are some of my tips!!

1.     Make a to-do list that ranks everything according to importance.

2.     Make a schedule so that you can get everything in. This is not the time for procrastination!!

3.     Instead of planning workouts that involve being out for hours on end, try short high intensity workouts. It’s the off-season, which is the perfect time to try something new! I have been doing a lot of spinning classes, sprint-based indoor swims, and kettle bell sessions.

4.     Make sure you don’t stress yourself out!! There should always be time where you just RELAX! Also, make sure you get enough sleep.
