While I don't talk about it much these days, I have managed to stay fairly active. I set a goal in May to complete four workouts a week to help me get into shape for triathlon training. So far I have kept my goal fairly well...
But I'm keeping with it. This week I have completed 3 of the 4 required workouts. Tomorrow I am biking 20 miles with the Coolbreeze group and if I feel peppy maybe we'll go for a hike in the afternoon to round out the bonus work out too. I'll wait until the end of the month to decide if I still get my reward despite not finishing my workouts last week.
Since I only have a week left to go until the May challenge is over, I am looking up triathlon training plans to get me started in June. Training for a triathlon is time consuming and requires double workouts (bricks) and lots of time on the road, on the bike, and in the pool. I am excited but also nervous about fitting it all in. Of course it will be easier once Alex is home during the day (2 more weeks till school is out!). Then I won't have to work around nap schedules anymore!
Any suggestions for triathlon training plans? I'm looking at Swim Bike Mom's ebook now. I like her flexibility and she is just so funny! Once I have my training plan figured I will be sure to post here.
I am already so excited for my first triathlon and it isn't until September, so I'm thinking of putting a few other races on my calendar. Maybe another Ramblin' Rose event. I'm thinking Winston-Salem, so we can stay with my in-laws. There is also the Lake Norman Excursion which is a 5k run followed by a 40 mile bike ride. I am excited for that event in July. Any other races out there that maybe I should look at?
