I have been embarrassingly neglectful of this blog and my training. I could come up with lots of excuses; like it’s been too hot, or I’ve been too busy. But the truth is that I’ve just gotten lazy.
I haven’t given up my dream of participating in an Ironman the year I turn 40, and in order to do that, I need to get seriously back on track. I read a blog post last week that really made sense. The blog is Stay on Target Coach, and the post was about setting goals. The post said that people are 75% more likely to complete their goals if the journal the experience. Whether the journaling is private or public, it helps. I have this perfect place for journaling my experience and I plan on taking better advantage of that. You should be seeing a lot more of me moving forward.
In that vein, here is my plan for the week:
Monday – 12 minute run
Tuesday – 40 minute bike
Wednesday – rest
Thursday – 20 minute run
Friday – 12 minute swim, 24 minute bike
Saturday – rest
Sunday – 20 minute swim
