What a difference it makes having a plan! I know it is only week 1 and am sure the novelty will soon wear off. However I am really enjoying having a training schedule to follow.
So the plan for this week had the following totals
- Swim – 1.30 hours
- Bike – 1:15 hours
- Run – 1:15 hours
- Total time – 4 hours
My actuals for the week were
- Swim – 1:31 hours
- Bike – 1:20 hours
- Run – 2:36 hours
- Total time – 5:27
Overall pretty close. Did more running than the schedule said but there will be weeks like this where there are races etc Am not too worried as long as the swim and bike don’t suffer.
As well as training this week I also did the following
- Time commuting to work – 12 hours
- Time at work – 34 hours (1 day off this week)
- Time coaching others – 5 hours
- Total time – 49 hours
Roll on week 2……
Didn’t really want to post about this….but I need to wake up, stop being in denial and start training!
I have signed up to my first long distance race. The Monster middle triathlon. On 14 August 2016.
It is a middle distance triathlon or half Ironman depending on preference. The bike course is slightly shorter though at 83km.
I brought a recommended book – IronFit Secrest by Don Fink to help me prepare. My approach to all my previous triathlon was to just train without a plan. However for this I think I am going to need to training “properly” if I am going to finish.
To hopefully show people who work full time, like myself it is possible to train/workout during the week. I will post all my timings for travelling to work, working hours and what training I do.
It will help keep me to my plan as well if I have to post about it!
Wish me luck!! 🙂
