Dr. Michael Milnes of Rochester, MN: Beginner Triathlete Tips

Dr. Michael Milnes has lived and worked in Rochester, MN, for nearly two decades. He is a former college football player who became a physical therapist after a career-ending injury. He has since dedicated his life to working with athletes and to competing in triathlons.

Every day, Dr. Michael Milnes runs or cycles around his Rochester, MN, community or he swims at a local rec center to train.

“I didn’t do one of those crazy ‘run a triathlon in twelve weeks!!’ things,” wrote Dr. Milnes. “I either ran, cycled and swam every day for a year. Then I set a date with my Ironman race and started the more intensive training.”

If you hope to run a triathlon, but would like to lessen the possibility of injury or burnout, consider following Dr. Milnes’s path by training slowly. These tips will help:

  • Learn Each Sport

Before you can complete a race that requires running, cycling and swimming, you need to learn each sport. Spend one month learning to do each of the three.

  • Design a Regular Training Routine

Once you’ve practiced each of the three sports needed for a triathlon, develop a regular routine doing each one twice per week with one active rest day. If you’re following Dr. Michael Milnes’s schedule, he kept doing this for a year in his Rochester, MN, community before upgrading to his Ironman training.
