The biggest benefit to being coached is I don’t have to plan my workouts. The secondary benefit of this is that I don’t spend anytime worry about the ramp up to a race. They just happen! I know my coach Jen will set me up for race day perfectly! We have been working together for almost 3 years now and I never have to worry about my plan! She has it covered.
The next race I have coming up is Vineman 70.3 on July 10. Here are my race day goals:
- Swim: 33-35 minutes (I think I can mange this if I stay string in the middle)
- Bike: 3:00 bike (I need to push myself on the bike and get a little uncomfortable)
- Run: sub 1:50 (this will be a challenge because this is close to my recently run BQ pace)
My PR for this distance is at Vineman from way back in 2011, I did 5:32. I haven’t been able to recapture that time since.
So what else have I been up to? Let me use some pictures to get you up to date!
