Training up to Tri Athy
It's been a couple of Weeks since I've posted my training plan, I've been busy doing the actual training! I've also had Two races in the last Two Weeks, Valentia Island and the Fingal 3D Tri. Both of these went really well for me and I have seen good improvements in my cycling which I was surprised by. Spurred on from my improvement I'm now prepping for Tri Athy on the 01st June. This is my first Olympic race of the season and I feel a bit under prepared due to a lack of longer distance training. Not much I can do now though, I just have to focus on getting to the start line in the best shape I can. That means stretching, good food and not over training between now and then. If I feel fatigued, I'll take a day off. Hers is what my training will look like.
