So we’re almost half way through my 10 week Iron Girl training.
I am proud to say that nearly one month after starting my training, I finally made it to the pool.
Granted the first month was a blur and a crapshoot since Hubs was gone for two weeks for National Guard AT.
BUT, I did make it to the pool. So go me.
Last week – week 4
Monday – ran 2.75 mi(some run/walk intervals)
Tuesday – swam (800 yds) AND did hot, slow flow yoga
Wednesday – unintentional rest day (whoops)
Thursday – ran 3 miles in the AM
Friday – strength workout (Day 33 Bikini Body Mommy – was short on time!)
Saturday – Rested.
Sunday – Ran 4 miles
Biking: 0 (WHOOPS)
Swim: 800 yds
This week – Week 5
Monday – run 35 mins
Tuesday – swim (100yd w/u; 100 freestyle, 100 kick, 100 breaststroke, 2×100 alternate FS/BS; 100 yd c/d )

Thursday – Run 30
Friday – swim or strength
Saturday – run (Women’s Distance Festival 5k)
Sunday – 1st brick workout – 35 min bike, 15 min run
This year triathlon training is a unique balance. I’ve been fitting in running either early in the morning before Ethan is awake, or in the evenings after he goes to bed. Surprisingly, I prefer evening runs because I like to shower in the evening – my mornings are easier if i don’t have to worry about drying my hair. But as I’ve accepted a new job with a heftier commute, and hubs’s office just moved to Baltimore, we both are struggling with a new morning groove that allows us to get workouts in while also getting out the door earlier to get little man to day care earlier so we can get home earlier.
Needless to say, my workouts have been heavy on the running, less so on the biking (largely because I’m having issues with my clips and shoes) so I need to work on that. Especially since I have the Maryland Sprint Du in less than a month. I’m thinking of changing out the pedals to the cages, at least until I get my clips fixed since I don’t quite feel safe using them right meow which is probably why my bike is still on the trainer, currently being used as a clothes drying rack for the Hubs.
Cue so many side eyes on that last one.
