Sunday: Run, 12 miles trail
Total Run: 23.9 miles
Total Swim: 3800 meters
Total Bike: 0 ( I decided to omit cycling this week for two reasons: 1. Rain, as I do a large chunk of my riding to work and was too busy this week. 2. I’m running the Super Spartan race next Saturday and wanted to focus a little more on getting at least 1 good run in. I hope to pick up on cycling this week as part of a run taper for the race.
Overall, happy with the week, taking the swimming slow.
3X (3 runs, 3 swims, 3 bikes) workouts are no joke. I did 7 workouts this week, 2 short of a 3X. Successful tri training will certainly require some serious time management skills. Considering an Ironman will need 9-12 workouts/week, all of longer duration, it sure looks daunting just from a scheduling perspective.
