Triathlon training time!

20140320-215205.jpg

It’s post race recovery and re-evaluation time. Yay, I got a personal record in my half marathon! Now, what’s next?

I have two races already on my calendar. My first triathon, Esprit de She Super Sprint in May, and the other Tempe Esprit de She event, a night time 5k in October.

We’ll be running the KaPow Superhero Adventure run as a family in a couple of weeks, and Anakin is super excited about it!

Now that I have decided to focus on the triathlon there are a bunch of local races. Honestly, I’ve fallen so far off the training wagon and I’m crawling back up to the path. After the Phoenix half, I’ve run a few times (4 super easy runs, 2 run club speed type workouts) but I’ve only been in the pool and on the bike once each. Yikes! Time to kick it up a notch.

Part of my problem is I haven’t mapped out my training plan. I totally took the last 2+ weeks off, when I know that I work so much better when I have a plan. I joined a couple of triathlon groups on Facebook & I also joined a couple of meetup groups for local triathletes. So now, I’m motivated and I’ve laid out a plan.

March is almost done, but that’s not going to stop me. Let’s start the madness!!

  1. My goal is often to run just one step further each workout.

    It won’t happen, so train above your target pace regularly.
    Carry a couple of energy bars or sports gels (around 200-300 calories each) and eat or
    drink one at least every hour to hour and a half.

    1. For my first tri, it was definitely all about the experience and finishing the race. Now I know what to expect, I’ll pay more attention to training paces.
