Happy Hump Day!! Here are some pictures from the Huronia triathlon I promised:
Before the race
Coming out of the water (although it looks like I am celebrating, I am really wrestling with my wetsuit!)
Leaving T1 all suited up. I omitted the less than flattering pics of me wrestling with my wetsuit!
Near the end of the bike
The Run (very hot -full Sun uphill!)
Thanks Hubs for taking these pictures!
I am really looking forward to my next one, and I am eyeing up a few more sprint distances and possibly a half iron man on Sept 13th. So, I need a training plan that will allow for both marathon (St. George Oct 3rd) and half iron training (Sept 13th). I have decided to use the 12week/55 mile per week Pfitz plan again. I liked it in preparation for the Shamrock marathon, and I think if I hadn't gotten sick, I would have ran a PR marathon. But I think this plan will be "Pfitz with a twist", since I need to be flexible. I am going to take the training week-by-week and really listen to my body. I may have to rearrange the run distances, but I will try my best to get everything in. Here is the plan for week 1 (this week July 12th -18th)
-cycling (off road Fly Gurlz)
-2km distance swim
-8 mile run w/ 10 x 100m stride
am-16K cycle (easy)
pm-track core workout (3 mile run- recovery)
-am - 1km swim time trial with Nachos
-pm - 16.3K bike/3km BRICK time trial with Nachos
-60K cycle/8 mile run -general aerobic
-13 mile run
Swim - 3K
Run -33 miles
I am a little worried about the Sat/Sun back to back days, but the group cycle is Sat am, and I planned a rest day Friday. If this doesn't work, I will switch up my long run next week.
Did I mention I am also trying to lose 15+ pounds?! I need to devise a fueling plan as well!
Hope you are enjoying your week. Thanks for reading!
