TRI Training, week 1 – done

ImageOn August 26th I competed my first training workout – intervals of walking 5 minutes and jogging 2 minutes. By interval four I was WINDED! It was a humid, sunny and 87 degree day in Nashville and I chose to workout in the heat of it. It felt good to be back into training mode. I was energized at the beginning but by the end I was thinking “If I’m already this tired now how in the world am I going to run 6.2 miles at the end of a 1 mile swim and 25 mile bike?” Thankfully positive thinking settled back in with some rationalization.  I’ll just have to focus on one day at a time and rejoice in crossing off the day’s workout from the calendar.

Week 1


I’ve adapted a Couch to Olympic training program from to accommodate my work schedule. I know there are those of you who get up and exercise before work but when I may be up for 27 hours straight every minute of sleep I get the night before is precious. The training program is 39 weeks, almost 10 months long. That allows some wiggle room for holidays, vacation and illness. Ten months, whew! That’s a big commitment. I’ll be adding in some Zumba when I need to have some fun as well as Focus T25 workouts. My goal is for triathlon training to be a part of my life, not all of it 🙂

What race are you training for? Did you make a training schedule or do you wake up and wing it each day? I wish I could wake up and wing it.  Week two starts tomorrow. Let’s do this!

Grace and peace,

Clean and Curvy
