Back out of the Saddle and into Insanity: The Asylum Volume 2! Glad to be back doing some conditioning and another Beachbody Challenge. I’ve taken the last 5 weeks off of accountability posts. It’s been 4 weeks since the Bakersfield Triathlon. I’ve been cycling a bunch and even competed in a Time Trial 8 days ago (good fun!). Since the Bena Rd Time Trial, I have been fighting a lung and sinus issue. I felt about 80% today, so it was really nice to push the lungs again. No issues besides some initial “getting back into swing of this” early fatigue on the push-ups. Everything else went great! πŸ™‚ And that should just about catch you up to date on what I have been up to training-wise.

So, if you don’t know anything about Insanity: The Asylum Volume 2 ,Β it is a highly technical program designed for Elite Training. If you have not seen the video of this program take a look here: http://www.beachbodycoach.com/esuite/home/fityak?bctid=1717308278001.

Thanks for reading! Any questions?

Cycling Focus Brings Pleasant Results

Spent the past two weeks on the bike. Not ashamed. It has felt good to be on the road. Putting down some good times for different bike routes too! I am faster than I have ever been on the bike, which is so much fun! This week I am going to continue to ride while the weather is nice and sprinkle in some runs. Next week I begin training by entering a Beachbody Challenge with a group of committed friends (even though I am the only one being committed to the Asylum πŸ˜‰ . If you would like to check out my rides for the last two weeks (or for the last year and a half and any future rides), check them out at http://app.strava.com/athletes/fityak .

Have a great week!

 

 

 

 

Buffering……….

No this isn’t a post about the annoying waiting involved when streaming video on your computer or handheld device, or having your car detailed with a high-speed, rotating chamois .. er .. wait, that’s buffing. Anyway the buffering I am talking about is characterized by putting something between two things you care to separate. In this case over the past 2 weeks I have been buffering (eating everything and only cycling) as a sort of Recovery from the 2013 Triathlon Season before I start Off-Season Training.

Let the Strength Training Begin! The 2014 Triathlon Season is going to be ridiculous! And as a Falco Bike Sponsored Triathlete I need to be ready! Beginning January 1, 2014 I move up into the 40-44 Age Group. Have I told you that many of the best endurance triathletes in the world are in this age group? Yeah, so I have my work cut out for me and I love that is is going to be a challenge!

To be honest though, I am not one who is very fond of “strength” training. I am very wired for slowtwitch activities such as swimming, cycling, and running, to name a few πŸ˜‰ . Alas, strength training is very important to increase sustainable and explosive power. To accomplish this goal, I will be doing all of the following at various times, intensities, and durations:Β  Insanity: The Asylum Volume 2 , TriCore on the EVOcx , Yoga, Kettle-Bells, and Stretching combined with the functional training of Swimming (laps and on BowSwim), Cycling, Running (indoor and on road/trails). This will start tomorrow and continue through the remainder of the year.

Sounds like fun! Check in from time to time and see how its going! These next few months I’ll be rolling out some different posts. Ones that are more entertaining than the standard Accountability Posts. Back to the recipes, product reviews, and eventually pictures of the Falco V TT Bike build in December. That’s is going to be exciting!!!!!
