Didn't workout over weekend-nice to relax..... Watched golf & a few movies!
After looking at calendar yesterday, I realized there are 10 weeks til my first official triathlon! Wahoo-it's part of KC Corporate Challenge which my work is affiliated with for our 2nd year! While I didnt participate in this specific event last year, it served as my motivation to complete AND compete in it this year! So here I am-my training schedule started yesterday!!
I'm using a training plan from trinewbie.com. It's an 11 week schedule that's fairly detailed. I used it last year for first time to prepare and enjoyed it-helpful, adaptable & user friendly! I do modify the scheduled days to fit my work schedule which fluctuates greatly! I rotate my training activities so I never train same for activity two days consecutively. I also utilize my heart rate monitor consistently.
I'll research my previous tri times and set my new goals here soon.
Monday: run/walk 8/2..... Watched heart rate to keep less than 165.... Hills HR increased to 172.... Walking intervals HR came down 120-130's. 38 min total (3-8 min runs)
Tuesday: swim day-30mins
100 yd warmup-200 x1, 100x2,100-drill sets, 50 yd swim, 50 yd cool down..... 50 yd walking water lunge. My rests periods are approx 1min between.
Gotta pull out my book to review drill sets before next swim.
Plan for bike day tomorrow-work dependent.....
Thinking I need to order a No-Meat Athlete T-shirt!
