15 to go until Twin Cities! I started off with a good week of training.
Monday: 5 miles (w/4x800)
Tuesday: 3 miles easy
Wednesday: 1200 m. swim
Thursday: 5 miles (w/2 at tempo pace); 30 min. yoga
Friday: 950 m. swim, 12 mile bike
Saturday: 11 mile bike, 1.5 mile run
Sunday: 10 miles
I am wondering if my FIRST program ups the long runs too soon. The first few weeks call for 13, 15, 17, and 20. I followed this last time around and felt like I maybe peaked to early. So I'm thinking of doing 10, 13, 15, and 17. What do you think? It didn't break my heart to cut back to 10 today because it was hot and I was running in the mega hills by my in-laws.
Goals for this week? Get the strength training back. I'm planning on going back to kettlebells, also need to make sure I work in some Jillian.
