The week after the half marathon is called transition period as I transitions to full triathlon training. That week was to recover and have fun. I ran a local 5K trail race with friends which was fun and non-stressful. Even through my half marathon training, I was cross-training with swimming and biking to have good base for triathlon training.
This year, I plan to do more multi-sports with 1 duathlon, 1 sprint triathlon and 2 Olympic distance triathlons. So this past week was the 1st build to start my official start of my olympic distance triathlon. Let’s say it was a little bit of a challenge to fit all the workouts in with my crazy work schedule. Time to do triathlon training is a challenge especially my friends training for Ironman. But I did achieve one goal this week of 2 swims.
Today, the New England weather is not friendly with bad fog this morning then a cold raw day. Not inviting to bike outside but put bike back on the trainer. My I Race Like A Girl teammates Colleen and Kalyn are out in this biking 75 miles which they are training for Ironman Lake Placid. That mental focus and strength will make them succeed in completing their first Ironman. Now I am waiting for my friend KIm to do my bike. #iracelikeagirl @iracelikeagirl
