Last week was pretty good. I got out there 5 or the 7 days. As the next few weeks come along I will increase the training to 2 sessions a day and more bricks. Bike is all tuned up and new semi-slick tires for the race 🙂
Here is what I got done!
Sunday – rest day
Monday – Run/Walk 2.5km
Tuesday – 60 mins bike ride
Wednesday – Running – 1mile in 16 mins & Swimming lessons – I was pretty happy with the run, I hit the treadmill to help with some intervals.
Thursday – rest day – I pulled a muscle in my necks at swimming lessons – heavy on the pain killers right now, but still training.
Friday – Running – 3km in 30 mins
Saturday – Kicked Ass on biking 20 kms in 55 mins – the first time I have done 20k, I am hoping to get that under 45 mins for race day.
Things I learned this week:
- it is all about the time now!
- ouch, swimming has been the hardest part of training!
Goals for the Week July 18 – 24
Running – mon, wed & fri work on speed, this weekend see how fast I can finish 5km.
Biking – 30 mins rides X3 during the week
Swimming – Every Morning at least 45 mins in the pool. It is all about the practice now!
Focusing on swimming now… whatever I need to do to get the meters done in under 20 mins. I will be training every morning and hoping to get into the lake 🙂
