Tri Training, Week 3 Summary
Overall, an OK week. Still not pouring on big miles, just getting into a regular routine of running/biking/swimming and doing my best to create a logical schedule. Completed at least 2 workouts for each sport, finding that 3X workouts are harder to manage than I first thought. That’s the primary goal for week 4: complete a 3X schedule and get a big swim in, at least 2 miles cumulative.
Tuesday: (AM) Run; 3 miles, track. (PM) Swim; 500 kick, 500 pull, 500 freestyle, 100 freestyle cool down. 1600 meters total.
Wednesday: Bike; 16 miles, 58:00. With about 4 miles of good climbing.
Thursday: Run; 1.5 miles. Tried to take the dog out for a 3 mile , but she was being a punk. (I realized she’s scared running at night and does way better during daylight).
Friday: Swim; 1000 meters easy freestyle, broken into 100s and 200s. (lost count).
Saturday: (AM) Run; 3 miles. (PM) Run; 10 miles…7 of it on trail, 3 on road. I hate road. I’m finding I actually feel really good on the 2nd PM workouts I do.
Sunday: Bike; 16 miles, same route as Wed.
Run: 17.5 miles
Bike: 32 miles
Swim: 2600 meters
I’m thinking that sometime in the next 2 weeks I’ll do a solo, pool-based Olympic distance triathlon (.93 swim, 24.8 bike, 6.2 run) out of the Rose Bowl.
