Focus T25 Alpha Phase Day 01 of 70 – December 7, 2015
It’s December and the weather is getting colder here in Bakersfield. The cross country season is now over and its time for me to divert my focus away from the student-athletes for a bit and back on my training for the next few months. I learned a few things about my personal training this cross country season while running with the kids – one being that I am a faster runner when I don’t just train by running alone. I’ll share my thoughts on diversification of workouts in a follow up post this weekend. For now though, let me start off this triathlon training log with Day 1 of my 70 day, get back in competition shape, effort 🙂
Now that I am teaching full time, finding the time to work out has been tricky. Luckily I was in a position while coaching the cross country team to workout with them. Historically I am not a morning work-er-out-er. I like to workout mid day or in the afternoon. That is why working out with the cross country team was great for me these past few months. But now I am not coaching for a couple months until the swim season starts up so its time for me to get back to a system that has proven to be successful for me in the past – Focus T25 coupled with spinning and sporadic swims. This time however, I am going to get in some additional run training to keep my legs used to the miles.
So here it goes! Let’s try this again!
Last night I didn’t get the best sleep. Sleep is important to be able to train at your best as well as to ensure proper recovery on a daily basis. I need to make sure that I am keeping to a decent sleep schedule from now on. I am a night owl, so hopefully this wont be too much of an issue. The following is my weigh-in, nutritional intake, and exercise regiment:
