Meeting with Coach...

Oceanside 70.3 training with Coach Doug started about (10) weeks ago... well, training with Coach started (10) weeks ago... Oceanside training started just a few weeks ago.  I have to admit, Coach's training plan so far is TOTALLY DIFFERENT than anything I've done.  I've never trained to heart rate/zones/time vs. miles... but I have to admit I'm already seeing a difference.   

Today, we had a chance to meet up with Doug, Steph and Sir Triton since they were in town for work.  We met them in Riverside for a hike and had a great time... and a great chat.  If you follow me, you know that Jeff supports me unconditionally and 110%!  So when he agreed to hire a coach for me, without knowing anything about him, he again, did it 110%.  Today was a chance for Jeff to chat with Doug, get to know about him and his plan, and have many of his questions answered.  I take for granted that I chat with Coach all the time, but I am so glad that Jeff had today's experience. :-) 

 After our hike, we met up with Tri It Together for their annual Christmas Party.  I can't say enough about how important this group is to me and my training.  Friendship... Information... Commitment... Support... this group doesn't care if you've never done a tri, or if you are doing your 10th Ironman, all levels train together... become friends... and support eachother... :-)
Training is going well, but life has challenges at the moment.  Working hard not to derail, because I know that God has a plan. :-)  At the moment, I'm taking life... one... day... at... a... time.
