It has been 3 weeks since I started my training, and I am not doing it alone. I have an app that tells me how much more I have to run and cycle during the week. The app is relentless and emotionally detached from me. I just have to assure it that I meet my weekly goals and keep up with this year's target. So what do my weekly goals look like?
Run for at least 10km and cycle for another 20km each week. I do it alternatively as I go along, but I will try to perform them both together over the weekend, just so that I can simulate an actual duathlon. The ultimate goal is to participate in actual duathlon which will have me run for 10km, cycle for 40km and end it all with another 5km run.
So the training continues, whether I am running early in the morning when everyone is still asleep, or late at night when everyone is preparing to sleep. My app will always be there with me to continually kick my butt.
