Well here I sit on the eve of starting my training program over again. 2006 has not been the best year for me. I did have a number of firsts in 2006, some good and some bad. I had my first DNF in a mountain bike race when I endoed over some logs and tacoed my wheel. I completed my first endurance race (6 hours of Addison Oaks) in some of the worst conditions I could have imagined.
However, as I sit here in the first week of December, I have gained 20 pounds since January and am is much worse shape than I started the year. Tomorrow I have the day off from work and I am going to start training for next year. My goals for next season are very simple. I want to finish a 12 hour endurance race and I want to at least lose the 20 pounds I put on this year.
This blog will be my training diary. Tomorrow the plan is Weight Training focused on the lower body. I will also be adding some form of cardio although I have not decided what that cardio will be. I think my weight days (M,W,F) will be short runs on the treadmill and hopefully a longer (60 to 90 minutes on my Trainer). Tuesdays and Thursdays will be Interval Training on the trainer.
