This week is Week 1 of my Out Season: get more powerful and faster plan. I will be doing this for 14 weeks and then transition into Half Ironman training to be ready for Welland Half Ironman in mid-June. After that I switch gears to Ironman training for Rev3 Full Rev this September.
But before all that I must put in the work. The sweat and wanna puke work. The OMG I am back in the game work. The WORK WORKS work.
1 test down, 1 more to go! I also want to start getting back into the pool - not for workouts but just so when the time comes I am not afraid to get back in. The OS work is hard enough without adding crazy other volumes, but for me swimming is no longer optional. I tend to skip swims, wimp out on the runs, and bag the bikes when I am not feeling it.
I see the pattern and have lived it for 2 solid years. Time to make some change in that!
