Spring Training Plans:
This next week starts my pre-pre training for the AK -Marathon. It will begin a really slow build of mileage, with a little speed work in the mix - something to focus on when the cold spring rains come down. I am also sticking with my heart rate training which means my slow long runs on the weekend are actually REALLY slow, I think someone could pass me walking. I am hoping that my aerobic capacity will increase and in turn mean that 60 - 70 % of my MHR will eventually mean a more normal running rate.
I finally ordered clip-less pedals and shoes for my road bike - I know, I know long time coming. I hope that this means a little more time on the bike this year, I neglected my roadie last year to learn to mountain bike, but this year with decreased vision I think I will make it a little more even between the two. I am a little nervous about my depth perception and mountain biking, but I will try it out a few times.
Swimming has come to a stand still right now, I have not been motivated to get into the chlorine - I guess I am ready for some open water. I am hoping to get into the pool at least once a week, but there is no definite goal that I am reaching for. Still trying to decide if I am even going to do a tri this summer...we will see.
I will be attending the CTC Spring training camp (April 16- 18 at Mohican) and hopefully that will help to tune in some skills.
