You know what they say...

If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. In my blog world that means if there is no real training going on then you dont have anything to post about. Between softball, work, and recovery/lazy week I have not done much. No I did not get to my VDOT. However, I have begun my big plan with some small goals in toe. My main race is the half IM silverman again this year but waaaaay faster. In the mean time, get my 5K, 10K pace as far down as I can. I want to run more economically even run hills better and overall GET FASTER. My plan is 8 cycles of 10 days before a 16 week build up to silverman. In each 10 day cycle I will do 1 swim (alternate long with interval), 2 bikes (one long and one hill repeats), 3-4 runs (recovery, 2 speed types, and one long), 2 workouts (one my overall body gym program and the other kettle bells) and core/push-up challenge tossed in as I can. That 10 days includes 2-3 rest days. Low key build phase to then get into race shape.

“The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.”
Stephen R. Covey
