Winter Training & what constitutes the "season" for Olympic distance training

Post by Chuck S » Wed, 09 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Hi all,
  I'm a relative newbie to triathlons. I'm curious what constitutes the on and
off "seasons" for triathlons. I'd like to train &  compete in some Olympic
distance tri's come spring, but I'm not sure how to periodize training over
the winter (and for that matter, what kind of training, if any is done over
the winter months). When do these races typically start happening?

Thanks in advance for your ideas & help.
