Last year, I started working on just getting one day a week of "solid training". . . That included getting enough rest the night before/after, eating right and putting in quality workouts for each sport. Even if it was only running or swimming once a week I had one day to focus on getting it right.
This is also the first time in the last three years that I have no races planned for about 5-6 weeks. The next race I am actually signed up for is the St. George IM almost 15 months away and the BIGGEST days for me this year will not even be races but some epic multisport days(more on that later). I am just enjoying training . . . maybe even training for training sake?
After the 70.3 race I took a day off and then just kept a good block rolling through the next weekend. I managed to pull the frequency from running and swimming that has eluded me for the last few years and got in my first week with more than 3-4 sessions in each sport. Stoked!
This week I am starting off with some recovery and then rolling into the weekend with a power test and continuing building from there....Not sure where it is going yet but I am steering clear of injury and my motivation is at the top of the meter. If I keep this up maybe I can work on an ATP next year?
