I've said this before and I'll say it again: nobody can replace my old Pennsylvania training chicas!
I miss them so---
(especially now that I'm over my head in Ironman training)
I've tried to branch out in the Big Easy, but I've found it hard when you are going
....... at y-heart rate
According to coaches orders of course!
Kim, Jocelyn, Jen, and I always just seemed to jive when it came to workouts. We pushed each other but were never overly competitive to the point that it was a detrimental to the goal of the work out. It was a very healthy, comfortable relationship. And given Jocelyn just qualified for Kona, I think we must have been doing something right :) For some reason everyone I've met in Nola, is like "it's Hammer time!!!!! Not exactly the smartest way to train in my book.
Therefore most of my workouts thus far have been S-O-L-O. Reminds me of that silly Jason Derulo song that just came out. Good i-pod song by the way :)
Despite some failed attempts at finding training partners, I made progress last week in finding a track running group at Tulane. I coordinated my speed running days to make it work. I met plenty of fast and fun girls. Very, very glad I went!
I'm starting to get to the point where I need to social aspect to keep me motivated. Definitely makes the workout something to look forward to.
What about you? Do you ride S-O-L-O or make it social?
