“You Can Do Anything You Put Your Mind To”

In six months I’ll be attempting competing in my second half IM distance race.

The first one didn’t go so well.

But things are different now. I am in a different place in my life than I was when I tried Mooseman a couple years ago. I am determined to finish this one. And in order to do so, I am determined to train appropriately, and fill my body with the nutrients it needs in order to succeed. Being that it is winter, and we are having a snow storm, may make some workouts more difficult, and I may not be able to follow the plan to a T, but, hey, you cannot predict Mother Nature.

Below is my first week of training:

Monday: Run: 6×8:00 with 2:00 walk in-between

Ride: 21 mile road ride (my body is not used to riding in mid-30 degree weather…when will it be spring?)

Wednesday: Leisure Mtn bike ride

Thursday: 10x 2:00 @7:20 with a 2:00 walk in between

Friday: Swim 40-50minutes at a comfortable pace

Saturday: Trainer 45 min

A lot can happen between now and the race, but I am starting off the New Year excited for 2014. I feel good things are in store!

    You sound like you are mentally prepared. I’m sure that you will succeed. Good luck and enjoy!
