Stamina is Earned Daily
For a variety of reasons and a long story I was out of the pool more than I was in over the last eight months. Now I am by no means an elite swimmer. My stroke isn’t pretty and could use some tweaking but in June I was swimming a half mile every outing in my local pool. Now I am struggling to do fifty yards. I will get it back but my point is that you lose conditioning very rapidly. Training must be consistent. Not necessarily grueling or painful but consistent. The first meeting of TriWomen will be next week and then my mind will really be focused on being ready for the triathlon season. I was unable to do the Irongirl sprint Triathlon this past September but I am signing up again. I am actually thinking about signing up for more than one. I know that I will have to follow a strict training regiment to regain and keep the necessary stamina.
