Back on the Train: Weekly Training Update

For the past two weeks, I have actually been pretty consistent with my training!  Last week was my first week with an official training plan, and the week before, I was motivated by the fact that I had my plan starting to get out and start early.

I'm working with a new coach this season - David Harding - of DEKK Coaching.  He is a local Ottawa runner and triathlete, and his resume includes multiple Boston qualifiers and a recent trip to Kona for Ironman World Championships.  Of course, I'm not a marathoner or an Ironman, but my desire to get my running back on track this season led me to Dave. I'm looking forward to having the accountability and structure provided by a coach for this season.

So with that, I commenced my 2017 official triathlon training last week!

Monday - Okay, so I didn't really start off on the right foot.  Waking up to swim at 6:30 am wasn't happening and then the day just got away from me!

Tuesday - 6k run with my new running buddy

Wednesday - I'm coaching HPS with Dave again this year, and we had our Lactate Threshold Test last week.  The gang crushed it and worked so hard.  We have a fantastic strength program this season too from Coach Jenn, so we hit our upper body and core along with lots of mobility work.

Thursday - Another run, but this time on the treadmill.  I am still not a huge fan of treadmill workouts, but I got it done by watching Harry Potter as I ran.

Fridays will be my official rest day this season

Saturday - 60 minutes on the trainer in the basement while George watched me with intense curiosity.

Sunday - 10k along the Rideau Canal
