Getting ready to Race!

 

Woke up this morning and stepped on the scale. Dropped 4 pounds. Yay! Kind of ridiculous how that works right?

Got my bike ready for tomorrow’s race! All dialed in and ready to go!

Went for a ride to get the legs ready for tomorrow’s time trial and then did an alternate workout than what was planned. It was the recovery workout which is more about stretching and flexibility. Tomorrow I will do the regular workout as planned. The only reason I am diverting from the plan is because of the time trial tomorrow morning. I figured a nice cycling workout followed by a good flexibility workout would be better than trying to Max out on the Insanity Max 30 program.

So I had an awesome carbohydrate loaded meal to boost the glycogen in my muscles and I am ready for a good sleep!

Enjoy your evening! Talk more tomorrow!

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 😉 . 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 😉 . 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:  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!!!!!
