So, as I mentioned the other day, I signed up for the Nation’s Tri. They get you in with $20 off coupons. I’m pretty excited. I’m 11 weeks out so I figure I can make a go at it – it’s flatter than my last tri so I’m hoping to do better. I know I’m weakest with the swim so I’m going to put a bit extra into those workouts.
I’m doing most of my training based on this plan.
The gist of my training is: 5-6 workout days with 1 brick (starting week 4 – after my NH/CT trip), 2 run days (1 long run), 2 bike days and 1 swim day each week for the first 4 weeks, and at week 5 it’ll look like
Swim & Run | Bike | Run & Bike | Swim | BRICK (run/bike) | long bike
Nations Tri Training…Week 1
swim 500 yds (50 yd w/u; 8×50 yds w/30 second rest between; 50 yd c/d)
Tuesday – run 30 mins
Wednesday – Bike 5 miles
Thursday – run 30 mins
Friday – rest
Saturday – bike 6 miles
Sunday – bike 30/run 15
Also I finally upgraded from the Huffster. You remember this old thang that got me through my first Tri?
What’s my new ride look like? She’s sleek and red and rides so smooth – love her. Thank you sweet baby Craigslist for bringing her to my life…
I took her out for a 4 mile spin tonight down to the water – she’s a pretty sweet ride.
But now? I need a name for her.
Help me name my bike! Suggestions?
