race plans

Everyone is on top of their game and writing out their race plans for the year ahead. I have been far too lazy and have not sat down to really look at it, but it is on my list of things to do. I finally got around to research vacation plans for us and that took all my planning brain cells I had. 

I did my spin class with my new bike shoes and it rocked !! It was super easy to get the correct clip in and clip out. I think I was clipping ON and stepping as opposed to clipping IN, which made the difference. I felt at one with that spin bike and really enjoyed it. 

Today I ran 3 miles on treadmill, have not run in a while. It was hard and I was at 10 min miles the entire time. Usually I try to do negative splits but not today, today it was about finishing my 30 minutes. I used the mantra I think I can, I know I can.

Tomorrow is swim with ironlady. I am hoping that we have a few less people since it is NYE and I might get a bit more one and one as well as not slowing the fasties down. One of my daughter's appts has changed from wed. am to sat. which means I have another AM open for working out that I did not have prior to this, so I really need to sit down and look at my days and try to stick with getting in at least 2 swims, 2 spins, 2 runs and a strength class - ideally this is what I would like to do and have a day off, which means i have to double up 0n a day.  
What do you do  ?  Do you always run on mondays, spin/bike on tuesd etc OR do you change it up and just plan the week before ??? 


  1. I'm not at that point yet. I'm starting a program tomorrow that should help me get there and then in April I start the hardcore training for my tri. Right now, I am all about cardio 5-6 days per week. This new program should help me get good strength training in, too!
    I can't get too regimented because I get bored SUPER easily and then give up!!
    Good luck tomorrow!!


what are you triing
