any triathletes/long distance runners here?
Just curious as to how you fit your training around your job...

Why, heck no! When you can ride in a truck, why run?Stay Safe

A little off topic but its about the difference in long duration work and firefighting. I used to be a hotshot for the forest service and do work for 12 hours at a time and once for 22 hours at a time. Now I work for a city fire department and realize that most fires are put out in 10min of work. So its strange for me to go from working long and hard to now just exploding for 10 10 15 min at a time. A little off topic but it relates to training for the fire department.
