This post was supposed to be a brief one, so here are just a few things that I learned over the season & will change for next year:
-the training volume that a "typical" Pro triathlete can handle is NOT what my body can handle. My training program has been/will be tweaked accordingly, since I don't recover as quickly, and tend to get sick or injured at a "critical" volume that others can handle.
-traveling to and racing 3 times in a span of 4 weeks doesn't work for me, so I won't schedule races like that for next year
-taking a week easy/off at the end of July is necessary for me if I'm going to continue racing into October and beyond
Thanks for reading! Until next time...
