It is that time of year where triathletes tend to not update their blogs as much as the final training blocks before the season are being completed. I thought I would give everyone a little update on where I am currently at.
Swimming is going great. For me swimming is just a matter of putting the time and staying consistent. I was thinking about it the other day, and I have not missed a single masters practice since September or October. Only a couple of other swims have been missed, but those have been due to unforeseen circumstances such as pool closures. A lot of people ask me how I improved from averaging over 2:00min/100m and barely making it 500m to where I am now. The answer is this consistency. I am swimming Masters Provincials in Etobicoke next weekend and looking for some pbs.
Cycling is also going great right now, unfortunately my power tap is not working so I am not sure how great. To help with this I just got a new bike thanks to MultiSport-Zone and Cervelo. This year for draft legal races I am going to be riding an S5 team with Ultegra DI2. So far I absolutely love the bike and have nothing bad to say about it. My P2 hates it though as she has been neglected and just sits in my living room.
Running, I am on the mend. I had to take a couple weeks off due to IT band issues. Thanks to Jenn Entwistle at Reactive Physiotherapy in London I am back to steady state runs. Next week we hope to add in some intensity since in addition to Masters Provincials I will also be racing Queen's Spring Fling in Kingston.
I am getting super excited for Knoxville, and I feel I am ready to give it a go with the big boys.
