Good as You Last Game!

“Good as your last game!”, Matt Jones, New England Patriot’s Quarter Back after the team lost the first game of the season. It is so true for any sport including triathlons and running races. Last Saturday’s long run gave me encouragement in thinking I can do a local half marathon in October. We all have good and bad workouts and races. It is how we move on and know our magic formula to be better. Today, I looked back at my training and races times the past couple years to see how I can create a plan that will make me faster than last 2 years. The one thing I saw, that hinder me, I really didn’t take a rest day every week consistently which my body needs. 2019 and 2020, I keeping having the same issues with my left side that slowed me done because I didn’t do strength training and stretch consistently. Last year with Covid, I was not consistent with any training. The last 5 weeks, I have been consistent with strength training, swim, bike, run and 1 rest day. This consistency has made me feeling stronger in bike and run, swim will take time. That picture was taken after doing 6 x 45 second hill repeats which will make me run faster. So I will be looking forward to the next race being my best! Maybe it will be that half marathon in October! Be safe and healthy! @pamhouck
