Per the first two posts you may be wondering how this will be pulled off. I am all about 'keeping it close to home' when I train. This equates to 85-90% of my training being executed in the "Leo Dungeon", "Performance Center", or simply put...the garage. Most triathletes are limited in the hours we have to train so I have opted to knock out my training between 4 and 8 AM. If it works don't attempt to fix it. Nothing beats a rock solid jolt of adrenaline before the birds awake.
Important note: Louisville is hot and humid so heat acclimatization will need to be a focal point of this prep. No worries for this kid...the garage will heat up to 100 degrees in no time. Bring it I say!
I have and will continue to utilize the following tools to 'sharpen the edge':
- CompuTrainer Lab w/ heavy emphasis on the IML Interactive Real Course Video
- Tacx Flow ergotrainer
- Parabolic Rollers
- Pacemaster Treadmill
- Industrial fan as needed
- PowerTap 2.4 SL
- Garmin 305 Forerunner (I will venture outside for some 'road loading')
- Training Peaks WKO+
In the upcoming posts I will present the training methods/schedule I will be using to load the mind and body appropriately for the task at hand.
Have an outstanding day!
