Austin has a plethora of skilled groups, teams, clubs, gyms, and facilities, especially if you're in it for fun and the social aspect. With all of the free community workouts, shop rides, access to free pools, and more, you'll never be alone. Just make sure you balance your time and effort levels. Also, make sure you pick a team or group with well-rounded coaches who have the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Don't be afraid to approach your coach if you are struggling. If you feel neglected or left behind, find another group. If you train primarily to maximize performance, then I would suggest you consider working with a coach and going solo with a lot of your training—or at least minimize the distractions while you focus on your “A” race or event. Most professional triathletes do the bulk of their training alone

and supplement with occasional group sessions. A skilled coach will work with you on your specific goals, personal life, schedule, race execution, nutrition, and more. Sprinkle in group workouts, but do so with a purpose. Use them for recovery, race practice, or even a mental health day. Join a group ride so that you're not on the roads alone, but ride at your pace and keep breaks to a minimum. Train with those whose performance goals are similar to yours. There are many pros and cons to both group and solo training. The direction you choose is often determined by your goals, your schedule, and desire. Regardless of whether you go it alone or with the pack, never neglect the important aspects of training: massage, bodywork, solid nutrition, and plenty of rest. See you on the roads. And keep Austin fit! afm
