CUW Training Plan: Week of 8/15 - LAST WEEK

A great thought on "is it up to you?" from The Obstacle is the Way:
-        What is up to us?
o   Our emotions
o   Our Judgement
o   Our Creativity
o   Our Attitude
o   Our Perspective
o   Our Desires
o   Our Decisions
o   Our Determination
-        What is not up to us?
o   Well, everything else. The weather, the economy, circumstances, other people’s emotions or judgement, trends, disasters, et cetera.
This relates to RACE DAYS so much! On race day, the only thing you can control is your emotions. You can’t control the other athlete breaking the rules, not pulling through the pace line, volunteers pointing you in the wrong direction, getting kicked/punched during the swim, or others being unsportsmanlike. Play fair, be kind, and have a little fun out there on race day. There will be plenty of Type-A crazies, but we will not be one of them, we’ll be good ambassadors for the sport and our school.

Things that need to get done: 
1) Races: Signing you up for everything on Monday.
2) Move in: WEDNESDAY!!!
3) Things I still need to get done: Order swimsuits (waiting for code), sign y’all up for races, send out school schedule, create goal sheets, figure out shoe discount (email sent), and send out pre-season schedule. I’ve got a final list of things to order before our first race (August 27th) and I’m sure we’ll discover some more things along the way!

Bike Workout:

Bike #1: Over/Unders: Helping you adjust to harder efforts and “active recovery” where you’re still going hard, but not as hard as you were so you can catch your breath for a second. These will adjust when we’re on campus to help with draft legal racing as well. That’s much shorter and harder efforts followed by active recovery as you move through the paceline.
