As I train for my first Olympic Distance Triathlon, I realized I wanted to share with you guys some of the workouts I have been doing so I can get your feedback! Because here is a little secret… I have no idea what I am doing! I am winging this! Also, it would be a great way for me to keep track since I sometimes have a hard time remembering what I did just yesterday… Also, I remembered my GPS watch on only 1/2 of the workouts last week, so pace’s are estimates!

Wednesday July 17 TODAY!!
-a.m: Hopefully a very early morning treadmill speed workout!!
Sorry if this bored you to tears….but it really actually helps me see it all written down!
I hope to get in that treadmill workout I have for today. Unfortunately it is more because I ate soooo much last night for dinner and have to go out to breakfast again this morning with family, that I can’t imagine eating all that without a workout thrown in between there!! I am trying to disconnect the two, but it is still hard to do!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone!!
What workout plans do you follow/do you train with for running races or triathlons?
