It is now just thirty-three weeks until the Ironman 70.3 Miami triathlon. My training is starting to seem more like real training as I am swimming now. I have even written a one month training plan on a white board in order to more easily keep track. A typical week is as follows:
Monday: Run 10K in the a.m., Bicycle 75 minutes on the indoor traininer p.m.
Tuesday: Swim 1500 meters at lunch time, strength train for 20 minutes in the p.m.
Repeat two more times Wed – Fri.
Saturday – Recovery day.
Also, I now have a true, carbon fiber, triathlon bike! My new Cervelo P2 arrived this week and I rode it for the very first time today. So far, I love this bike! Just need to make a few tweaks. I think I will continue riding the old Trek 1000 on the indoor trainer and take the Cervelo out on the weekend for experience.
Stats this week:
Swimming: 4500 meters (pool)
Biking: 225 minutes indoor trainer with some hill simulation
