This week things are a little different, it is my last week before marathon training starts so no real plans or goals other than to start P90X (Day 1 done!) and increase longest run to 6-7 miles. My main focus is nutrition this week after the holidays of treats and wine! Instead I’m sharing my accomplishment last week…
I finished a triathlon!
Okay so it was an indoor tri but still this nonswimmer got herself in the pool! It was actually kind of fun (after the swim was over).
10 Minute Swim= 325meters, I’m not a fast swimmer and somehow this short duration knocks me out! I know I need to do it more but just can’t seem to convince myself to get in the pool.
Quick 10 minutes to change into dry clothes and grab my bike shoes, a little water and get the bike adjusted (the worst part of indoor tris is not having your own bike).
30 Minute Bike= 9.8miles (19.6 mph!). Looks like my months of injury have helped the bike!
Quick 5 minutes to change shoes and get to the treadmill, a few leg stretches and we were off running.
20 Minute Run= 2.86miles (6:59 pace)! I was thrilled! It looks like the 6 weeks off and strength have benefited my speed. Now to focus on keeping this speed with longer runs. Luckily I had a good view of the woman running ahead of me and wanted to keep my pace faster, yes I’m slightly competitive.
I actually had fun and am considering a real outdoor triathlon again!
What are your goals this week? Any advice for a swim hater for a triathlon?
