We all want them. We all know that if we only put the time and work in we will get them. Sweat…. Focus….and a small bit of Crying are sometimes the right combination in getting them. What a reward!
After finishing up WEEK 5 on Sunday I sat down last night and began looking at some of the numbers.
For example –
SWIM - each set is 10 -15 seconds faster than when I began and the recovery is noticeably faster than when I started.
BIKE – the prescribed rpm’s are easier to maintain for longer periods and I am even seeing improvements in the stupid one-legged drills. Two hours on the trainer is nothing.
RUN – I am FINALLY nailing the prescribed HR zones and even tackled my first set of run drills this past weekend (hill repeats, butt kicks, and high knees).
So like that I close out week FIVE already and move onto another week ahead.
Truly my biggest discovery so far is realizing how very important a good attitude effects your training. Mine is just where it needs to be!
This week I will be doing a 5k all-out so that we can check and make sure my HR zones are still correct. Last time I did this was back in the Fall and so it is time to run my butt off again. I must admit I am interested to see if any changes comes from this. Next week will be the bike HR zone check. They are different people. :)
Thanks for the awesome comments!
