This is the end of my phase one training. I was able to finish the week with 14 1/2 hours and I feel pretty good. Tomorrow starts the first day of my active recovery week. I will end it well rested to have my Vo2 retested on Saturday. Sunday I will treat myself to a swedish lactic flushing Swedish massage.
I feel good with the first phase as I accomplished all the goals I had set.

Such as -
**Eliminate drinking - this was far easier than I had thought it would be. Alcohol affects my performance too much, therefor it is an easy elimination. Although, I am treating myself to some red tonight, as tomorrow is recovery and a little is good for the heart :)
**Swim, Bike and Run at least 3 x each for a week - done.
**Keep up pilates and trigger point - I've been able to get in 1-2hrs of Pilates a week and hit my Trigger Point during lunch at work and during the evenings before bed. I can not express how much these two aid in injury prevention, joint lubrication and flexibility.
**Eat clean - this has probably been the easiest transformation. I highly enjoy cooking and from what I've heard I do it well. Which makes eating healthy enjoyable.
