First off, thanks for all the birthday wishes! Camping was great and good times were had by all…even if we did get a little water logged!
So you may ask, what’s next? What does one do when coming off a 15 minute marathon PR? Why begin training for a first 70.3, of course! Because logic is not always my strong suit. Have I mentioned that I’ve never done a tri before? So, you know, there’s that. In my defense, my stupidity does have boundaries. With that being said, I’ve done something kind of terrifying…
I hired a coach.
Here’s the back story. I found Katie over at Run This Amazing Day back when I first began in the blogging world. I recently rediscovered her blog again to see that she’s kind of a badass. And not only is she a certified badass, she’s a coach! I decided that I want to be smart about this training cycle so I emailed her. Unfortunately, her plate is jam packed. Fortunately, she just added the amazing Jenni as a second coach, who I will be working with over the coming months.
So far, so good. It’s been really nice to have someone who I can ask a million questions. I will say that I almost had a panic attack and backed out when I saw the first week of workouts. They don’t seem too hard, but they look incredibly intimidating to someone who has only trained for running up to this point.
Bring on the 70.3!
