Dunsborough X adventure Training

 

With the Dunsborough x-adventure race coming up this Saturday I have tried to be a bit more consistent with my training. 10 days should be enough right???

I know the run will be fine so I was more keen to focus on the swim and bike this week. My sister – an experienced triathlete – advised me to do a beach swim to make sure I don’t panic. So that was another item to add to my list…..don’t have a “shit fit” in the sea.

 

  • Saturday 8th

Run – 18.6km @ 5.02 pace.

 

  • Sunday 9th

RPM – 45 minute class

 

  • Monday 

30 minute pool swim

 

  • Tuesday 

Club Interval Run – 3*3km intervals & WUCD – 13.5km total

500m Beach swim where I didn’t freak out, horray!

 

  • Friday 

RPM – 45 minute class

 

  • Saturday 

17.7km run @ 5.02 (how odd that both run paces are the same)

500m beach swim

 

  • Sunday

Bikram

 

  • Tuesday 18th 

     

    PT session organised by work

 

So looking at all of that how I could be more prepared is beyond me! 😉

I didn’t have a chance to get out on the mt bike so am hoping the RPM classes will be enough to knock the cobwebs. All the swims were great, I love to swim and am comfortable in the water. However I am super slow but nothing I can change in the next few days. I borrowed a wetsuit from a pal so I am going to test that out on Thursday morning……after the man who sold me the tri short advised me too.

Bikram was great and really highlighted how inflexible I am. I am thinking I will make this a habit.

This week I want to do one RPM and one swim. After that will chill until the race. It’s not too big a distance and I will have trained for 10 days so I’m thinking no need for a taper. J

I have no pictures of any of the above, sorry. However I just found some pictures of me from last year! (I did the 12km run of the long course last year)

 


Have a good one. J

    • Yes, loving the x-training! But I am beginning to miss the structure of a program…..and my speed and endurance. Oh, the troubles I have!
