OK, I feel a trend of posts coming now that I am using a coach. I made the decision back in January to work with Jen M. from One 10 Performance and Nutrition and I couldn’t be happier with it! I have really enjoyed not having to figure out what to do everyday and the variety and challenges she presents me with are really working. I have seen gains in all three sports and I am excited to see what happen at Ironman Arizona in November.
Last night I had to run to a specific heart rate for two 15 minute segments. I was to run just below threshold and see how far I could run. It was so much fun! It was nice not to be focused on distance or pace but just my hear rate. I found that actually made the running easier. I have been doing the same on the bike and what amazes me that even though I am holding back on my HR (trying not to go anaerobic) I am still PRing on Strava segments! Just more proof the training is working.
