Sports Event.. Part of the Overall Training

Well, I am back from the Wounded Warrior Games with my team mates Kristen & Dwayne. It would be an understatement to say anything other than SIMPLY AMAZING & I even think that's not doing the week long competitive event justice.

I will be posting a complete rundown of the Games along with photos next week.. so stay tuned for that.
Today I'm going to talk about the training & how it's going to improve and what I'll be doing leading up to my event: The Iron Nugget Sprint Triathlon, TN August 6th.

I have 3 running events scheduled as part of my training. The first one is this weekend & it is a 10 K. I'm not looking for a PR, but if I can increase my time then that's a bonus. I just want to run clean, continue to move forward and NO WALKING. Physiologically I'm done once I start walking. I have a 5 K schedule in June ( The Gaspee Day 5K) and a 5.5 miler in July. These runs are part of the training but I will continue to run 2-3 X's a week as well.

This coming Tuesday starts my TUESDAYS OUT OF THE OFFICE training. I will be doing a piece of each discipline on Tuesdays until I leave for the event in August. The weekends will give me a chance to switch up run-swim or bike- swim or bike- run.. I enjoy all three disciplines.

Tuesday trainings will consist of 12-15 laps in the pool then bike 4-6 miles and run 2-4. I will be able to transition into each one of them from the pool. I will also be able to tell from the first official time out if the distances are too much ~~ then adjust as I go. I know however that come mid July I have to have significant mileage & distance under my belt to be able to go out on event day and compete well.

I am competing against myself, but want to do well. I am getting my bike tomorrow and I'm super stoked about it.

Well, that's it for now... I have my "game plan" set and will take it one day at a time!

Always & I'll be Rockin the Glitter!!
