First Blog Post!
Instead of looking too far back into what I’ve done over the last few months/year, I’m going to start my first blog post as a pre-curser to the upcoming summer of racing!
Every day I’m getting more excited! I can’t wait until my first race of the season in May. I’m really pleased with how much solid training I’ve been able to do this winter, and how I’ve improved every day, and the difference I feel it making in all facets of triathlon. I have started riding outside again with Coach Luke and the rest of the group, while doing lots of focused swimming and long runs.
I also had a Balance Point Assessment a couple of days ago, and despite some hard sessions the day before, I had some very positive results, showing a positive trend of improvement through my training. Every one of the 2-hour assessments I’ve done have been such a huge help and become a real necessity in my training in order to know and understand how to train smarter, more efficiently, and ultimately race faster. By determining my limiters and strengths, Luke helps me know how to make the changes I need. I would highly recommend this Assessment as a baseline or measuring stick as you set your goals for the season!
Looking ahead to the summer, I have 8 races planned, including non-drafting local races, Provincial DL Series races, a Canadian Junior Elite DL race, and possibly even a road cycling race.
2016 Race Schedule:
This schedule might sound a bit crazy, but I am absolutely looking forward to every one of those races, and love the training because it fuels my passion for triathlon! It’s exhilarating to me to think about triathlons, watch triathlons, train for triathlons and most of all, race triathlons! Can’t wait for the season to begin!
Thank-you for reading!!
