MastersTTRacer.com is changing focus!
The original focus of this blog was keeping family, friends, and colleagues informed about my training and racing. That is about to change. On Sunday, January 5, 2020, this blog will become a blueprint for former high school/college/post-college athletes who have been on the couch for the past 20-30+ years. With obesity levels over 40 percent for the senior population in the U.S., it is never too late to live an athlete’s lifestyle again. I will show you how I did it.
The two biggest hurdles to resuming an active lifestyle is finding the time to train and having a motivating goal. The best time to exercise is first thing in the morning, when you have the most control over your daily activities. A recent study reported in Preventive Medicine Reports found competition was the best motivator for resuming and maintaining an active lifestyle. To that end, I will share what I’ve learned over the past 18 years as a successful competitive age-group cyclist who didn’t start competing until age 52. (This applies to any of the cardio sports.)
I will show you how to reduce your fitness age, a reliable indicator of longevity, by 20+ years over the next 12-24 months. There is no guarantee that you will become a national age-group champion in cycling (or any other cardio sport), but you will definitely be healthier, happier, and an inspiration for your family, friends, and colleagues. What’s better than that? See you on the 5th.
