This last week was assessment week. I use the coaching program TriDot .
I currently use it for triathlon training, but they do marathons too!!!
There are many reasons why I use this program. But let’s look @ the numbers!
Raw pace= 2:00/100m
Threshold 100m= 2:20
Raw time for 400m= 8:03
Raw pace= 1:54/100m
Swim Dot= 53
Threshold 100m= 2:00
Raw time For 400m= 7:38
Improvement of 22 seconds off my 400 time.
We know swimming is my favorite. I literally was not in the pool at all in between assessments as I just didn’t have the $ for pool fees.
Okay so we get that I love the water. But still the gains were there just from my other activities.
Bike Dot = 51
15 mile time trial on indoor trainer = 44:56
Threshold = 147
Power = 151
Bike Dot = 56
15 mile time trial on indoor trainer = 44:10
Threshold = 162
Power = 162
Improvements made in overall time/heart rate/projected power
The bike is hard but just because of amount of time in saddle plus I am not all that great at it 🤷🏼♀️
Run Dot = 15
5k time trial = 39:32
Pace = 12:45
Run Dot = 14
5k time trial = 40:22
Pace = 13:01
Okay so I definitely did not improve here. But I am chalking it up to a few things.
- Weather- it was significantly colder and windier than my previous try. Had to change to a hillier route
- Health- I was just getting over a chest cold
- My own serious LACK of dedication and training
- I SUCK at running, I am so slow!
Being sick the week before assessments I was not expecting any improvements.
I also know that race prep for IRONMAN CDA 70.3 starts tomorrow, so I’ve been slacking 😏😏😏.
Tomorrow starts my race prep phase so I am ready to kick it into high gear and show what Tri Dot can really do for me in CDA.
I will keep you updated on next assessments😋
