The person with the most skewed perspective on where your triathlon fitness level is at, and which direction it's headed will always be you. How many times have you questioned whether you are doing too much, or too little? How many times have you wished you had someone with real experience that you trust to tell you what you need to do to accomplish your dreams?
Unless you're a full time professional, or a member of a National Team, you have a life that probably includes at least forty-hours a week at work, additional family commitments before and after that, and a whole list of priorities that are not about training. And even though having a great experience in the sport can be a priority, many triathletes train in ways that hinder the chance of success.
