    Who else is...

    Starting the winter workout routine? Hunting season kills my workout schedule and today is my first day back at it. Chest and tris this morning, anybody else working out?

    I'm starting into next season's training regimen today, kick it off with front squats and some cardio!
    I recognized long ago that if I have a warehouse full of guns, but no public land or public wildlife, I have nothing!

    I've still got a tag I'll do a little weekend hunting on and some predator hunting, by yes last night I started riding the elliptical for my winter routine. I am lucky I don't have to go crazy though my job is physical enough that I only have to fill in voids of in activity.

    I am going to do a 15k this summer, maybe a half marathon. We will see, just have to sign on the dotted line.

    Anybody into triathlon?
    I started road triathlons about 4 years ago and have recently graduated to off-road triathlons, XTERRA. They are awesome. I liked the road tris and still do a couple every year but the xterras are much more fun. The group is not as "type a" as the roadies and the training is more fun. I live in a great place to train which helps.

    The thing I like about triathlon is the cross training aspect. I get most of my fitness off the bike since its a lot easier on my knees and only run as much as I have to, to remember how to do it. And the swimming really helps for recovery days, lung capacity and breathing.

    On road sprint distance triathlons start typically with 400yd swims, 12 mile bikes, and 3 mile runs up to iron man distance. A typical xterra is a 1 mile open water swim, 15 mile mountain bike and 6 mile trail run. Don't let those distances fool you, the elevation gains are typically substantial. This year I qualified for the xterra national championship and the course was a 1 mile swim then an 18 mile mountain bike that had almost 3000 vertical feet of climbing and a 6 mile trail run where the first mile was straight up the ski hill at snow basin in Utah. I was no where near the front of the pack but for me it was a solid 4 hours of output (equivalent to a marathon) that had me training in the mountains and way easier on my knees than training for a marathon.

    If anyone is interested in starting or training tips for a triathlon let me know. I am not an expert but have made a lot of mistakes that I can help others avoid. And you get to buy new toys, I saw some folks on here hunting from the Mtn bike, I might have to give that a try.

    I have thought about it, but the hardest part is giving up my scouting time in the summer.
