To earn the title of Olympian is a goal of so many athletes, yet only a few from each sport are able to own that label. In the ever growing sport of the Triathlon the competition is fierce and demanding with athletes logging hours upon hours away from their families. This multi-sport event consists of three disciplines performed in sequential order; swim, bike, and run.
Husband and wife duo Greg and Laura Bennett, both proffessional triathletes and yes, both Olympians are able to balance grueling training sessions and a successful marriage without skipping a beat. They are currently busy preparing for what they hope to be a successful 2011 'World Series' season. Greg had an awesome finnish in the 2004 games in Athens, 4th place and Laura competed in Beijing in 2008 and also finished just off the podium with an impressive 4th place as well.
Not unlike Greg and Laura, so many of us are looking for one device to cover all of our training needs. Enter the Forerunner 310XT multi-sport GPS watch. It has swim, bike and run modes and the ability to upload the workout data to view metrics through charts and maps within our free online community Garmin Connect.
"We use our Garmin's every run and every ride, and having a GPS in Europe, where most of our 'World Series' events take place, is priceless. The Garmin 310XT is a fantastic training tool. It is a liberator, it give us the freedom to run our "speed work" on the trails, instead of a boring track, while giving us the ability to still keep an eye on our pace and stay on injury free surfaces. Not to mention, we can use the same device while in the water swimming!"
