Traithlon Training – Days 1 and 2
I forgot to enter in my training for yesterday for the triathlon training that I am doing. I do need to add that I am modifying the run a little to meet a 10K that I am doing the 2nd of April, as well as a marathon that I will be running in June. So my running will be a little different from what is typical in an Olympic Distance Triathlon Training Program.
Yesterday, Wednesday, I did a bike ride of 15.5 miles. I did short sprints every mile for about 30 seconds on the ride. Overall the ride felt great, but I do need to add more speed to the ride. I need to figure out the gears a little more, and I also need to work on my cadence on the bike.
Today, Thursday, consisted of a 1250 meter swim. I started out by doing 5 laps as a warm-up, then I did 100 meter repeats. Once I hit 20 laps, I did then 5 laps as a cool-down.
I also will be doing a 20 minute run that will be followed by 3 acceleration strides. I will start out with a 10 minute warm-up, and will finish with a 10 minute cool-down.
