I’ve got some races scheduled for this spring. Winging it doesn’t work very well for half marathons and triathlons at least for many anyway. I want to be stronger, leaner, and successful at my races and not just survive.
I’ve got two races this spring so I found a training plan on Tri Radar that I liked. Then I added in my mileage for the Tear Drop Half marathon. Once I got it all into Training Peaks, it can be overwhelming and scary. So you just have to breathe and take it one workout and one day at a time.
So there are several weeks until I need to start my plan, until then I’m trying to hit all the sports so I’m not starting from zero. I have some base but don’t want to shock my system and get hurt. I’m also keeping my strength training as long as I am able so that I build stronger muscles.
Last night I needed to spin on my bike and for whatever reason I was putting it off. I didn’t get it done at 3 pm when I had more time and energy. Instead I put it off until night time and found myself at 8 pm standing here looking at my bike. I sucked it up and got on.
Well just a quick 30 mins later, I surprised myself and found I’m stronger than I think. I kept a good speed, faster than I thought I could go. So put your big girl panties on and get it done. You may surprise yourself.
