STICK – stands for….
Set a goal, this can be 3 days a week, this can be an event like a road race or time you do a hike in.
Time – Set aside at least 20 minutes or more on your work out days and do it no matter what. Also choose the best time during the day. For me it is in the morning.
Increase – As you get into a rhythm start to increase your effort and your work out duration.
Cross Train – Bike, Hike, Swim, Walk, Lift Weights
Keep Going – Don’t let setbacks stop you in your tracks. If you miss a day or a week, get right back on track!
My weekly work outs consist of…
40-75 miles on my road bike
5-15 miles road running or power hiking
2-4 miles of swimming
2-3 days of push ups, sit ups, pull ups and weights
So get out there! Ski season is right around the corner!
