Sunday, I had an interesting talk on phone with one my triathletes. I had a revelation on what I did this year that it kinda blew my mind at 63:
4/6 Great Bay Half Marathon
5/25 Pineland 25K Trail Race
7/29 Yankee Homecoming 10 Miler
8/16 Blazzing Saddles Metric Century
9/7 Punkinman Half Ironman
10/18 TARC Fall Classic Half Marathon Trail Race
I realize I was healthy throughout all these races and peaking right time for each one. Had one minor injury and recover in couple weeks. After next week’s race, I will start my recovery to train for next year’s races. So many athletes overlook recovery and well-being. Like my triathlete, KT said it is time to do yoga, core work, hike and chill. But still do our 3 sports (swim, bike, run) without intensity and distance. This revitalizes your body and mind.
Starting next week, I am doing a 3 week clinic Recovery and Well-Being. 1st class is Meditation. Check the Upcoming 2014 Clinics for details.
