|Taking Lady out for a ride!|
In the last eight weeks I have done:
Swim- 17 workouts, over 11 hours, about 18 miles in the water
Bike- 22 workouts, over 36 hours, over 600 miles on the bike
Run- 23 workouts, over 18 hours, about 120 miles
Core- 3 strength sessions
65 workouts, totaling over 67 hours in 56 days = BUSY!
|Feeling triumphant after my first 4 hour bike/4 mile run!|
Again, I'm really proud of the work I'm doing. I know I'm stronger than I've ever been. Feeling this way makes we wonder, what else can I do???
The above workouts included two triathlons- WallyMan Olympic Tri and MiniMussel Sprint Tri, which I will try to recap in a separate post..... someday! Training like this keeps you busy. You figure I'm working out a minimum of eight hours a week, and that's just time in motion. That eight hours a week doesn't include the time I spend maintaining my bike, packing my nutrition, organizing my gear, transportation to workout location (I don't always workout from home), or (the biggest time suck) planning when/where/how I'm going to do the work. It's incredibly time consuming and I'm starting to miss my family.
|Aren't they beautiful?!|
What I Need To Work On
- Pulling it all together and seeing the big picture. You know, there really is something to all this talk of nutrition! I've been practicing eating and drinking like never before.
- Transitions- I am soooooo sloooooow!
What I'm Proud Of
- My bike during Mini Mussel. I felt like I was flying.
- Continuing to put in the effort Every Single Day. Like I said, it's time consuming. I miss my family. I haven't been able to do the Team CJ things that I wanted to do this year so far. And I'm not proud of that, but the finish line is almost in sight, I only need to push a little bit longer.
