Thirty-Three Weeks to Ironman 70.3

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

Running:  30K


I live in Orlando, Florida and participate in marathons and triathlons.
