Pretty happy with another week of more than eight hours of training. Was forced indoors for my Saturday long ride (because I am afraid of the cold), but pushed myself on a morning-after-a-wedding run Sunday morning, which felt great. Let's get to it! How was was your week? Anyone racing yet?
- Monday: 2150-yard swim
- Tuesday: 80-minute bike trainer
- Wednesday: 40-minute run, with 6 x :30 surges
- Thursday: Easy 35-minute spin on the bike indoors
- Friday: 2200-yard swim
- Saturday: 2:45 bike ride indoors on the trainer. And my TiVo wasn't working. SO. BORING.
- Sunday: 75-minute run, with 2 x 15-minute tempos at Zone 4
Weekly Totals: 4350 yards swimming, 4.67 hours cycling, 15 miles running
Year-to-Date: 42,734 yards (24.3 miles) swimming, 34:30:33 hours cycling, 169.11 miles running
Looking Ahead: A very busy week, with nearly 10 hours of training, including a three-hour bike ride and a near two-hour run.
