Its hard to believe that 18 weeks ago I started this little triathlon training adventure and here I am, still pushing and striving. Not to say it has been easy, I have had my setbacks and I have had to overcome some adversity, so it has not always been easy. It just sounds so amazing to think I have stuck to 18 weeks of hard training, setting goals and sticking to them. The prime motivator for this week’s goals is getting my doctors go ahead to start my normal training again. Pretty simple, but I can’t do much more than that.
But on top of getting the doctors go ahead I am going to continue what I started last week and work with that program through Thursday. The weekend might have to be dynamic, because if the doctor green lights training again on Thursday, I will be doing some heavy endurance stuff to get myself prepared to deal with next week. My original plan was to start my race periodization plan for my March race this week, but its on hold so I will have to move things around a little.
So my basic goals for this week
- Continue watching the diet for nutrition,calories and salt
- Monday and Wednesday 30 minutes of brisk walking and a set of swim drill work (try to do superman and other standard drills)
- Tuesday – Pillates
- Thursday Doctor Visit.
As I said goals are pretty simple this week and hinge on Thursday doctor visit. Also, I will have another blog post later about a big thing that happened this weekend that will also effect what I do after Thursday. Til next time.
