Week 1 of triathlon training…success! Mostly? I think. Coordinating schedules with a husband who has evening classes and around a 15 month old is not nearly as easy as one would think.
By the numbers… I did 20 miles on the bike, 5 miles of running, and 500 yards of swimming.
Monday: Swam 8×50 yds (with 50 yd warm up & cool down) | 4 mile shake out ride to test my new wheels
Tuesday: unintentional rest day – Ethan had surgery on his ears and I had planned on taking him out for a run in the afternoon but it was really hot and he just was not having it.
Wednesday: 6 mile ride in the AM (~35 minutes)
Thursday: rest day
Friday: unintentionally off. Whoops.
Saturday: 5 mile run (~1 hour run/walk)
Sunday: 10 mile ride (49 minutes)
I hadn’t meant to take off three days last week. But I may have had a couple of glasses of wine on Friday with friends while cooking out, and on Thursday at a work happy hour. WHOOPS.
Thankfully, weekends are for family runs and I love running Saturday mornings with Hubs and Little Man.
run 30 minutes Donezo!
Tuesday: swim 500 yds (5×100)
Wednesday: Ride 8-12 miles
Thursday: Swim 500 yds (5×100)
Saturday: Foam Fest 5k
Sunday: Run 45 minutes
This weekend Hubs has drill weekend Friday – Sunday so I had to modify the schedule a touch. . So, instead of 2 bike days this week, I’ll throw a longish ride in on Wednesday and that’ll be my lone bike day this week. I’ve always felt that training plans were “guides” and needed to account for life. I’m early enough in my training that I can shift things around since two a days don’t start until next week and BRICK workouts start at week 4 or 5 (after my New Hampshire trip)
Don’t forget, you can register for the Foam Fest 5k – in any city!! and get $5 off your registration by using code FF3108.
