Dean Evans on Balancing Work and TriathlonsPosted on September 8th, 2017
Harris & Ross patient, Dean Evans is a regular on the Triathlon circuit. He took part in the World Championships in Mexico last year and was ranked 14th in the world in his age group! Here Dean tells us how he balances a full time job and the demands of being a triathlete.
With less than a week to go before my next race, the World Corporate Cup of Triathlon at Trentham Gardens, Stoke-on-Trent, it’s important to take the right steps to prepare for the big day. I consistently train on average 12 hours a week, which is physically and mentally demanding, on top of a busy 40 hour a week job working for a US Corporate.
I try not to worry too much about the race, putting confidence in the training and all the hard work I have done over the last few months. What’s important is making sure my body is in good shape, as the stress of sitting down all day in an office, combined with training in the evenings can take its toll.
For this, I entrust Harris & Ross for their support and guidance. I get regular maintenance on an old on-going back issue with Nick Worth at the Manchester City Centre clinic and will be undergoing another check-up a week before the race. In addition, I find a sports massage every couple of weeks is great for injury prevention, ironing out any tight muscles, which helps to aid recovery.
Focus on your controllables and don’t worry about the uncontrollables.
