Happy Friday! I’m still alive, but just trying to balance time in training, work, finishing up the semester and now the holidays!
Last night I met Andy Potts at Vision Quest Coaching, one of my favorite places for Computrainer in Chicago.
Vision Quest hosted a great event. I got to try food from Lyfe Kitchen, which I am sure I’ll be back to soon since it’s not too far from work! Lots of raffle prizes given out from Trek, Transamerica, SRAM, Rudy Project, and more.
Robbie Ventura hosted, and we got to learn about Andy’s history in getting into swimming, triathlon, and secrets on training. My crib notes:
Rules for Triathletes:
- Know the course
- Don’t cheat
- Go Fast
Think like G.I. Joe – “Knowing is Half the Battle”
He reads a lot on the computrainer. Doesn’t listen to music or watch TV.
Workout wise, he focuses on work-to-rest intervals.
A good night and great way to get motivated for Triathlons in 2014!
