Until then, last week was a great week of training...
- I ran a solid 4.5 miles. That's a bit shorter than my training calendar calls for right now, but it's a faster and stronger 4.5 miles than I have ever run before!
- I did a strong 1 mile swim...I forgot to check the clock when I started but it was right around 35 minutes. I wasn't trying for a race pace mile, but I felt good all the way through the swim!
- I took one spinning class which tackled some pretty long hills...
- and...I finished a T1 brick on Friday morning!
Last summer I hit a real wall on the run during my first triathlon. Reflecting back on my training, I realized that I had neatly talked myself out of all bricks. Not so this year! My amazing friend Amanda, put together a training calendar for me to work myself to the Olympic triathlon in August. I am taking each day as she laid it out. This year I am already going farther, faster than I did last year. I'm excited to see the changes in what I can talk myself into doing, and how hard I can work.
Last year I had a goal...I achieved it but not with the strength I was hoping for...it was tough to finish both triathlons.
This year I have a goal and a plan...already I am faster and stronger than I was at this point last year. I can't wait for the triathlons this summer...I'm gonna rock!
