I have gone and hired a triathlon coach. (Excitement. Excitement. Yeah. Yeah!)
First he told I had too many races on my schedule so I had to eliminate some. Ok. I have only eliminated one. I have some decisions to make.
Then he suggested athletic testing. I was supposed to go last Friday, but because of the blizzard of 2011, I had to reschedule. This is supposed to help me get into the proper workout zone for........
The increased number of workouts he has planned. Scary workouts that involve things like lactic threshold and an "easy" zone two run. (I have yet to figure out how to run and remain in zone two. Maybe less spastic arm movements and hip displacing juts? I am open to suggestions.) I am leaving behind the days of six workouts a week and headed to the days of nine workouts a week. These workouts include drills and zones and weights. Weights?! Hopefully I am also leaving behind the days of coming in lastish! We will see. (Someone should clue this dude in though. If I die, he won't get paid.)
Pictures of the half marathon just arrived in my in box.
Bad doesn't even begin to describe it.
I look like I am in the middle of the Bataan Death March instead of a 13.1 mile run.
Ok. Go ahead.
Next time. (Ha!) Maybe I will wear a hat. And earrings. I am sure earrings would have made all the difference.
(Do you think it is every efficient to have my arms where they are while running? I think probably not.)
Do you think that after I train with this coach I will look like this when I finish races??
Katie Price and Peter Andre. I don't know who these people are. (Someone help me out here.) But does it LOOK like they just finished a seven hour marathon??
