This was an excellent week of progress for me! I LOVE to see things falling together so nicely! Thanks to the guidance and support of Coach Kelly, I’m seeing more progress than I thought I would this early in my training! I hope that means big things to come in August at Ironman Mont Tremblant!
Swim: 8250 yards
I had a swim time trial on Wednesday this week. It was only 200 yards, but I saw a 2 second improvement over my 200 yard TT from about 6 weeks ago. This may not seem like much, but I was super happy with this! Now if I can translate it to long distance swimming, I will see HUGE improvements in my swim times at Ironman Mont Tremblant! Hello Progress! I’m glad we’ve met! 😉
Bike: 76.8 miles
I put some hard work in on the bike this week! I love to push myself and see what I am truly capable of from time to time! When you do the work and trust the process, you reap the rewards! I am looking forward to reaping the rewards of my hard work on race day in August!
Run: 14.8 miles
I also had a run time trial this week…5K at the track on Saturday. After spending MANY hours at the track rehabbing an injury a few years ago, I have had a mental block at the track since. I’m happy to be making progress with this mental block AND my 5K time! I went into my 5K time trial with a goal of running a sub 8:00/mile pace and a secret goal of breaking 24 minutes. I’m giddy to report that I surpassed my secret goal! I finished in 23:53 with negative splits! My 1st mile was 7:46/mile, my 2nd mile was 7:41/mile, my 3rd mile was 7:40/mile, and my last 0.1 of a mile was 7:28/mile…I was so happy with myself that I smiled and laughed during my 1.25 mile cool down! I’m still smiling! Hello progress! I’m glad we are still hanging out together!
Strength Training: 1 hour & 55 minutes + 10 minutes of core strength daily
I had 3 solid strength training sessions + 10 minutes of core work every day this week. I’m so grateful that my body allows me to push it so hard, while remaining injury free. I know this wouldn’t be the case if I didn’t incorporate the strength training into my schedule every week. Strength training keeps me on track and allows me to keep doing what I love while staying injury free! Thank you body!
Weekly Totals: 12 hours & 42 minutes
