Today is the Day! When Tri Training kicks back into HIGH GEAR. But let’s just recap the stuff I’ve done in the past couple of months.
So what is my unilateral attack for running my ass off?
- Burswood Twilight Run: (17 Jan) 8km
- Triathlon #2: The Medium One! (26 Jan) I am going to sign-up for 400m swim/ 16 km bike / 4km run
- Triathlon #3: The BIG one! (28 Feb) I am going to sign-up for the 750m swim/ 21km bike ride / 5km run
- Freeway Bike Hike (21 march) Signing up for 6okm
You’re looking at one busy lady. I mean I have the WHOLE month of January off and I can’t wait to just sweat it out. I am someone who needs fitness/life goals and this is one of those times. I may not win the race, I may have to walk some of it. That doesn’t matter. It’s about getting my ass in gear and USING what my body is capable of doing.
So how do you get going on the unilateral attack of your fitness?
PLAN: I am someone who is going with the 10% increase each week until the Tri and then tapering off about 1 1/2 – 2 weeks before the Tri itself. Coach Annie said that you have to be able to do the swim, bike, and run on their own double the length of the actual race. That means for my first Tri I will need to able to swim 800m, rice 32km and run 8km without stopping. Oh Man!
REST: I am an EPIC failure at resting. My mind is CONSTANTLY going and it’s hard for me..at times..to shut it off. However, I know that denying my body of rest is the SINGLE INDICATOR of exercise/eating/H2O drinking failure.
H2O: I am going to bust out my water bottle and form a positive harmonious relationship with it.
FOOD: Fueling my body with stuff it likes. Sugar, processed..not included. Neither is dairy or gluten. Or Fiber for that matter.
What’s the Transform Me exercise plan this week?
- Monday: 1.6km swim
- Tuesday: 25 minute run, Level 1 Shred
- Wednesday: Swim 1.6km, bike 45 minute
- Thursday: Run 30 minutes, Level 1 Shred
- Friday: Swim 1.6km
- Saturday: Bike 1 hour, Level 1 Shred
- Sunday: REST
That’s right…I am ready to kick some ass. There is honestly a part of me that is SCARED of committing to doing something harder. I survived my frist Tri and feel like ‘I’ve ticked that box off’. However, I need to challenge myself. I need step up my game. I need to do this for me.
My unilaterally attack begins for me. Now, you may or may not be at the level that I am at. You maybe be higher, or lower. I DON’T CARE. Just get up and do something that you’ve always wanted to do. I want to prove to myself that I AM doing these things.
What are you going to unilaterally attack this week?
