You know what these are? Cycling shoes. Legit-huh? Not wasting any time, broke them in tonight in a 45 minute spin session of 15 1-minute on, 1-minute off intervals. Coach Erik rocked it and kept us going the whole time. It was a great challenge! My WOD training came in handy for sure.
Going to have to listen to my body as I add tri training to my CrossFit routine. I’m pretty excited about this new adventure. I have already been reading a lot of ideas about how these programs fit together (or not). It is interesting to see the many perspectives out there.
I, of course, am most interested in developing an informed perspective that will guide my progress. One thing I’m already convinced of is that doing this with a Whole90 underway is a BIG (huge, actually) step in the right direction. If I wasn’t already somewhat convinced, try cramming yourself into a 2-piece tri suit and looking in the mirror. And then meeting people you don’t know. Yeah. That will hook ya to the Whole90 wagon for a bit.
You’re probably not surprised that my adventure takes another exciting turn (hope you’re not anyway). Thank you for joining me on this ride (no pun intended!). And thank you for reading. As I’ve said before, knowing your out there keeps me writing (and WODing, and spinning, and running, and swimming, and Whole90-ing…)
