Reflections of a week gone by.....
Over the course of this week I have spent some time reflecting over the past year, my race and the training that I did to get to where I finished. Overall I am totally pleased with the result that I achieved, I would not change a thing with what I did this past year. Moving into a new season I have awesome opportunity to make it a better experience, better from the perspective of a result not better from the experience. I could never compare what I experienced this year and would never compare it. Over the next weeks I will share with you what I believe I can do differently and what I think that can accomplish for me. PLease share with me your experiences and training history as part of what I am thinking about doing! you are all part of my chaos, and kicking some serious ass next year will be something I would love to be able to include your input and motivation in. In the exact way that you all pushed me to an excellent result this year!
After a good week off, tomorrow I start applying myself to a new training session. I am not 100% sure what I am aiming towards, however, I know I am going to get stronger in the process. I am starting tomorrow with a good recovery swim and over the next few days moving towards some resistance training that will make me hurt. My goal is to build power and strength before ski season and then graduate to some run training over the winter. Sounds like a good theory and makes sense based on what I want to accomplish over the next 12 months. Here goes!
I hope your weekend has been full of excitement and satisfaction. I hope those who raced kicked some butt!
Cheers and Happy beginning to a new week!
