Anyway...I digress...here are the numbers:
Bike: 2h 20m 6s 35.91 mi
Run: 1h 45m 29s 10.72 mi
Total: 6h 35m 35s
I had a great run today...I really feel these changes starting to happen. I hardly even have to think about a forefoot strike anymore, and all of my runs were outside this week, so I didn't even get to refresh the feeling in the Vibrams. (I am going to make sure I get at least one barefoot run in this week...I did miss running barefoot and was even contemplating running outside with the VFFs on, but then I chickened out...way too cold to even try.)
I just checked my schedule for next week, and I have a swim test on Thursday. I'm super excited about that because it means I get to start laying down numbers that I can improve upon. Coach Mary also has me doing some drills on the bike which is great for me. I really think I have a lot more potential on the bike, and this is the way to access it!
So, I read a few days ago that pro triathletes typically gain about 10 pounds during the off-season. When I read that I felt so great because finally there is an area of my life where I can match the pros!! No, really, maybe it wasn't quite 10 pounds, but enough is enough!! Tomorrow I am back to my nutrition challenge with a couple of changes. Here are the guidelines if you want to join me:
- 1 point for 4 veggies
- 1 point for 3 fruits
- 1 point for 80 oz. of water
- 1 point for not splurging/overeating
I'm going to restrict weighing myself for one more week because I just don't want to get too freaked out. I know where I should be, and I think a week without sugar will get me to my comfortable weight...hopefully.
Thanks for reading....have a great week and happy training!!
