This year my coach Jen is starting things off a bit differently for me. We are doing a couple of sport intensive blocks of training. We stared with cycling since I have a 90 mile gravel ride coming up this weekend (what the heck was I thinking!). I really enjoyed all the cycling and we capped off the training block with an FTP test. I had a 3 watt increase to 187 so I was very pleased! I am hoping to get my FTP by September for Ironman Wisoconsin to give me the best shot possible at getting that Kona spot!
Speaking of Kona spots, I have applied for a chance to have my Quest for Kona documented for a TV series Ironman is putting together. It would be a really amazing opportunity and I think I have a unique and positive perspective on training and juggling a very busy life! You can see my 2 minute video entry below. I think I would be a great fit for the project. I just hope they do too!
I will post a race report (hopefully that includes a finish) from the Rock Cobbler this weekend. I am not gonna lie, this is the first race I am truly not sure I will finish. Next up.. a run intensive block just in time to kick start my training for the Boston Marathon!
Excellent video entry Becca. You inspired me for sure. Fingers crossed for you and hope you have a blast this weekend.
