New me…same as the old me...

...Only slower

(Note: I’ve update Rage with some pics – If you didn’t get a picture from me and you were supposed to, e-mail me)

With my (hopefully) last sprint of the season out of the way, it’s time to revamp the training schedule.

For the ME2008-v1.0, it was hard, hard, HARD. All the time, any time. HR zone 5 anaerobic non-stop. And I think that was the right thing to do.

It was a sprint race. They don’t call it Sprint for nothing!

But now it’s time for a new approach (ME2008-V2.0). Looming in my future are several Olympics and maybe even a few Half’s.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to go back to the basics. The next 10 weeks are base. Going back to the slow and steady approach.

GOD! This is going to suck!

Do you realize how slow 'SLOW' is? Like, REALLY slow! I’m talking ~14 min miles. I’m talking about keeping my HR below 133 on the bike. I’m talking S.L.O.W.



If you need me…I’ll probably still be running my 5 miles. It’ll take all day!

umm...14 is my run pace!

Don't even ask about the bike pace. Is it possible to be going backwards and still pedal!!??

Just found your blog and your race report was great. I am doing my first tri in 3 weeks and your thoughts during the swim seemed so on target.

Good luck on your training.
