Happy Blogging Anniversary to me...

I started blogging 1 year ago!! It was the Saturday before my 20 week plan started.... And, here we are again.

Fired up, and ready for the journey to begin. Fortunately, I'm a lot less scared. As long as my body holds up, I know there is no way that I won't reach that finish line! Last year I was surrounded by 6 other close friends and thousands of fellow triathletes. This year, although our local group is small (S, momo & I), I can't wait to get there and meet all of YOU! It will be a fun adventure, no doubt!

It was a pretty darn good week. My body started to feel much better... I had less and less arm & neck pain as the week went on, and today, even after a tough 3 hour bike ride, I'm feeling good! Cheers to that!

I also had one of the best running weeks in YEARS. Maybe it's my new shoes (switched from Adidas Supernova Cushion to Asics Gel Nimbus), mabye it's good karma for finally resting an injury (4 weeks completely off of running) - or maybe, just maybe things are starting to fall into place...

I didn't run far, and I didn't run hard, but my times were :30-:40 /mile faster with a MUCh lower HR. I haven't run 9:30 miles consistently in mid zone 2 for YEARS.... It felt fantastic, comfortable, and a lot more natural than my slow 10-10:30 paces....

You can see my total numbers for the week on my side bar. I'm really happy with them, and I think I'm in a GREAT place to start week 1/20 on Monday!

Here's what next week will look like:

Monday -
Swim 2000Meters (typically more like 2500 at Masters)
Run 50 min (moderate) LOW zone 2. 139-153

Tuesday -
Bike 2hrs (Moderate) same Hr as above
Daniel strength session

Wed -
Swim 1500M Moderate
Run 45mins (tempo) high zone 2 150-164

Thurs -

Daniel strength session

Friday -
Long run 1:10 zone 2 139-159
Swim 1500 tempo

Saturday -
Long bike - 3:30

Great workouts this week! I'm going to attempt my first triathlon this summer. Probably a sprint tri in hopes of one day doing an Iron man when my life settles down a bit! I look forward to checking out your progress!
