Just did my last "A" race of the season. Never really took a structured approach until this year and picked a sprint tri for my last "A" race. I've had a coach for the past couple months, did a solid 8 week base in the beginning of the season, and really focused on training. I worked really hard, didn't miss workouts, and was feeling fit, or so I thought. I did this tri last year using my completely unfocused and unstructured training plan so I had high hopes of seeing progress. Today I actually did worse in every event except I was a couple seconds faster per mile in my run. Needless to say I'm really bummed out. Just thought you all might give me some perspective. Thanks.
