Next Triathlon: Camp Pendleton Sprint

My next triathlon is on Saturday.

With all that has passed in my life recently, my training has at times been less of a priority.

My last triathlon was over a month ago. Before that triathlon, I put in all the hours, got in all the workouts, yet didn't do as well as I wanted to. This time around, I've done a few things differently.

I have been working out with a personal trainer three times a week. We do strength training, endurance, stability, and plyometrics. They're tough workouts.

Another experiment: I've lost a few pounds. At my last tri, I was 165 lbs (I'm 5'10"), and now I'm 159 lbs; in other words, my body mass index has dropped from 23.6 to 22.8. Both are well within the range of healthy for my height. But, theoretically, less fat moves faster. My goal is a 17% body fat percentage; at last measurement I had 27% body fat.

I can't wait to see how it all plays out on Saturday at Camp Pendleton.

Good luck! You've got a solid foundation of base training from the work that you did earlier this summer. The time you've spend on your move and with your family won't have hurt that. Congrats on the weightloss!
