IMTN Blog Challenge Week #14 Training Recap

So here we are at the start of Week 15 of this IMTN Blog Challenge and over the past 14 weeks you have seen how KC and I have managed to meander around the training world with our eyes on different prizes.  This week brought the realization of a race for KC on March 22nd and the end of the 11 week training cycle for Rocky Raccoon 50 for me.  Here are our Week 14 stories:

KC's Week 14 - IMTN Blog Challenge Recap

I like to call these last 14 weeks foundation building kind of weeks. My next race is a 70.3 on March 22, and although it is not what I would label an A race and I have not been following a specific training plan this time around, I do feel that my base is super strong and that when race day arrives, I will be more than ready to go and do very well. I had a good week overall. The only thing I would have liked to have done was 1 more day of Xfit but I will try to fit that extra day in this week for sure. I’m super stoked I got my 6th century of the year done today. The hub’s asked me how long I planned on keeping up this century a week streak. My answer, “I don’t know.” I’m enjoying it a lot. Today’s century was 60/40. 60 miles outside and 40 inside. Still can’t ever imagine doing a century all indoors. I would probably die. There’s only so much netflix and iheart radio I can listen to, then I begin to shut down. That’s the beauty of Florida living. There’s no need to ride a long ride indoors. For the most part, year round, we can ride outside. For the record, I will NEVER, EVER move to a state where it snows. I like my sunshine and warmth way too much. One last thing, big props to my Texas friends, Jason and Jeff who did the Rocky Raccoon 50 mile trail run. It was Jason’s first and I think it was Jeff’s 2nd time. Way to go guys! On to week 15! Upward and Onward! [caption id="attachment_9437" align="aligncenter" width="300"]IMTN Blog Challenge KC's Week 14 Training[/caption]

Jason's Week 14 - IMTN Blog Challenge

There is not a lot for me to recap as this week was a super taper week with a total of 14 miles run until race day when Jeff and I went for 50.  There was a lot of lying around and doing everything I could to avoid eating.  Luckily for me there was a lot going on with work as my team continues to grow and develop long-lasting relationships with clients that will allow us to market them in a much more efficient manner. Rather than bore you with all the details of the race in this blog section I will refer you to the race recap for Rocky Raccoon and alert you to the fact that there will be two more pieces to go in this race recap along with an eating/nutrition blog post I have been asked to write for No Meat Athlete.

About the Author:

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
