Triathlon Training – Day 37 – 43
Now I’m playing HUGE catch-up with my blog. So please forgive me if this is a little long. But I will try to keep it as short as possible.
Swim (AM) – 2000 meters. I again focused my workout on my kick and my stroke. I did ladders for my workout, but I only worked 100, 200 300, 200, 100. After that I swam 100 meter repeats until I hit the 2000 meter mark.
Run (AM) – 40 minute tempo run. I began by doing a 10 minute warm-up, followed by the tempo run, then followed that with a 10 minute cool-down. I was supposed to run this yesterday afternoon, but I was exhausted and I knew that I would not get all that I needed out of it, so I postponed it one day.
Bike Ride (AM) – This was a 37 mile bike ride in which I worked on my cadence. I tried to maintain my cadence to 90 rpms, but managed 84 rpms for the ride.
Run (AM) – This was just a 6 mile run … nothing fancy, just ran 6 miles. I took it easy, and tried to maintain my pace for the run.
Bike Ride (AM) – This was a 15.5 mile bike ride on a stationary bike. I worked on maintaining my cadence at 90 rpms.
Swim (PM) – I did not have the luxury of my lap pool, so I have no idea how much swimming I did. But I swam for 40 minutes. I was supposed to swim 750 meters.
Run (AM) – This was a 4.5 mile run. I started with a 5 minute warm-up since I was on a treadmill, and then followed the end of the run with a 10 minute cool down.
Swim (PM) – Again, no lap pool, but I swam for 30 minutes. The chlorine was very strong, and I could feel the burn even with my goggles on. I was supposed to swim a 1000 meters.
Mini-Brick (AM) – Today I decided to change it up. I was supposed to ride the bike for 18.5 miles, but it is not the same riding a stationary bike, so I decided to do a modified brick. I started out with a 30 minute bike ride on the stationary bike working on keeping my cadence at 90 rpms. I then followed that up with a 30 minute run on the treadmill. It was an excellent work-out and a wonderful way to start my day.
I promise that I will try not to let this get out of hand again, and I’m sorry for the long post.
