My workout this morning was the first one using my online coach’s plan. (No official training on Mondays since Pete uses them for rest days.) With the exception of a couple of drills, the workout wasn’t very challenging because Pete is focused on building a strong base for now.
I biked for an hour, ran two miles and then lifted weights. Pete gave me specific drills to complete during the cardio segments. This was a bit different from what I’m used to because I usually don’t focus on drills – bad, I know. And I rarely combine a major cardio effort with an entirely separate strength training segment. I was tired after biking and running so I had to really push myself with the weights. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed today’s session.
I actually feel like training for Hawaii 70.3 and Nationals has officially begun. What a fantastic feeling!
