Cross Training: Off - Road Mountain Biking

I been wishing to join triathlon and I can only do that if I go serious training with my running, biking and swimming.   For now, I simply want to train for my marathon next year, and start with swimming lesson program this Summer.

The off - road biking earlier was around 27 km with only 2 km of sandy and rocky off - road biking. For a newbie, the off - road biking can quite cause me to be more anxious and worried. Well, I can only overcome my fear and stay balanced through the rough course.

So, how important is cross training to a runner and alike? Cross - training gives  you the varied flavor from the training program your pursuing. Running 4 -  5 times a week can be a draining and tough ordeal and having a cross train can deviate your mind from the fatigue and boredom of doing the same thing again and again.

You may have a cross - training in swimming, aerobics, yoga or basketball or soccer. The thing is, you just have to be recharged from your cross - training to keep your endurance, agility and spirit high.
