Ummm…how is it already February?! Last week was all about consistency. Being consistent is key to achieving our goals and dreams. I had a big week of training both physically and mentally. Don’t worry, there was lots of recovery (ummm…this girl can and does sleep), good fueling, and a some treats sprinkled in too.
Quote of the week:

Swim: 10,200 yards
Sunday I got to swim with my friend, Traci. I am not a fan of long continuous swimming in the pool because I get bored staring at the black line on the bottom of the pool without mixing things up. This is something I am working on more in 2022 as it builds my mental endurance.
- Warm up:
- 300 swim
- 300 drills
- Main Set:
- 8×50 descending (30 sec rest)
- 1000 straight swim
- Cool Down:
- 200 any stroke
Bike: 118 miles
I had a couple of longer rides this week to build endurance. And the best part of the longer rides…fueling with Peanut Butter Oreos!
Run: 43.2 miles
I typically do my speed work on the treadmill, but Monday I took my speed work outside and it was SO GOOD! Doing speed work on the treadmill helps me hit target paces, BUT it is costing me confidence in my speed pacing outdoors, which is where racing happens. Doing a mix of speed work on the treadmill and outside will not only build my physical strength, but it will also build my mental endurance. I’m here for it all! ⚡️
Strength Training: 15 minutes of core strength daily
