I am not sure what to call this training plan, but it will involve lots of strength training, and maintaining a level of fitness to enjoy running 2 sprint triathlons until I begin training for my Olympic tri in mid-September (I will begin training in about 6-7 weeks).
Today’s workout was good. I can’t tell if I will be sore tomorrow or not, but I assume I will. Things I learned today in this way of training:
- My back needs lots of work from a strength and mobility standpoint.
- My shoulders need to be bulked up significantly. The bruises on my collarbone after my shoulder press are proof of that.
- It’s always more fun to train with someone else.
