Training has been going as great as it can be with that huge blister on my heal. I can't put on my running shoes yet so am getting creative to get something in. Saturday was the dreaded brick x3... Remember it's when you bike 30min in your different zones then run for 5 minutes and you do it three times. Well the biking went great and better then I thought but no running I ended up doing a body weight circuit. Took me almost a minute to get out of those tri shoes that are attached to the tri bike. Let's just say it wasn't pretty or graceful and I am scared for that transition now. So anyways the body weight circuit I did my 30 squats x3, 10 pull-ups x3, 10 push-ups x3 and 20 v-sits x3. So I know the squats I prob should have only done 10 at a time (wasn't thinking and I had done 30 due to my 30 day squat challenge already when I realized I should have done 10 at a time... My butt will thank me later lol). I am proud I did all 3 rounds and biked a total of 27.2km. I figured out I need to work on my fuel during these times and I need to do more electrolights. I am learning to listen to my body more.
Sunday we were supposed to do a run workout and since the wearing of shoes wasn't happening I did another 30 min on the bike for 16km (total distance on the bike for the weekend was 43.2km... Insane I know). So now to worry on the swim part.... My first triathlon race... Yikes! It's indoors but the pool part has me nervous and a little worried. I can swim but getting that feel comfortably know I can do it feeling is hard to get. I know with more swim workouts it will come but come race day my competitive nature will come out and help me achieve it.
Two weeks later is the super spartan.... Just nervous and excited about it. I want to attempt to complete every obstacle challenge even though as much as I love Burpees I don't want to have to do a ton of them. Lol
My nerves are getting to me for both the races but also the excitement of doing a race in another place. I have two Spartans that I am completing in the states and the last one the beast is getting done up here. I am so glad that is the last race I am doing this year.
I am happy to be back on track with training and making good strides finally with things. I never knew this triathlon training would be so intense and require so much time to be put into it. I am glad I am apart of my tri group not only for the support and encouragement but to also be on the right track and be able to do my triathlons properly knowing the things I need to. They are a lot more technical then I thought they would be.
I am excited to give my first one a tri on Sunday. I would be less worried if I didn't have my blister on my foot. It's really making training a challenge. Oh well live and learn but glad I got that snowshoe race over and done.
Until next time...
