Weekly Training Goals

Recap – last week (5/25 – 5/31)

Monday: REST! – accomplished! (although I did a LOT of yard work, so it wasn’t actually resting per se.

Tuesday: 10 mile bike ride + pushups + weights – not accomplished – instead I rested

Wednesday: morning swim/afternoon run (3 miles) – again, not accomplished – instead I ate cheese

Thursday: yoga + pushups + weights – I totally got that yoga in! go me!

Friday: run/swim/run (5 mile run) – I ran about 3.5 miles; it was HOT

Saturday: 15 mile bike – again, with the resting! I had such a traumatic morning, that I had to go home & rest instead of hitting up the gym. SLACKER!

Sunday: run – length to be determined – maybe 5-6 miles – I did a trail run of about 4.5 miles, and it was good.

This week (6/1 – 6/7)

Monday: Swim for about 45 minutes. Goal today is to take as few breaks as possible; abs at home

Tuesday: Morning hill repeats; afternoon bike ride; pushups

Wednesday: Morning swim; afternoon weights

Thursday: Morning EASY run (3 miles); afternoon yoga (which I am counting as my ab work, too – last week, we held plank about eleventy-billion times)

Friday: Trail run (5 miles); weights

Saturday: 15 mile bike; pushups

Sunday: 10 mile run

Mileage totals: 25 bike or so; 23 run

Today starts my 18 week marathon training, which I am piggy-backing onto my triathlon training (only 9 weeks to go!). In 5 weeks, I have my 2nd (and so far only) half marathon of the year. So, you know, nothing really scheduled at all.


  1. I gotta start getting in more of those push-ups and yoga work. It doesn’t seem right that all I am doing is running. Good for you.

    p.s. I havn’t forgotten about that awesome granola bar recipie. I put it on my to do list for this week.

    1. I am looking forward to the granola bars! YUM!

      There were a few weeks, when my fancy training calendar only had runner icons & blank spaces – and that just didn’t seem right. I’m trying to be a BIT more balanced.

    I think the triathlon training will help you build a good aerobic fitness base, with plenty of time for marathon-specific training. Good luck with the week ahead! 🙂

  3. I bet if you stopped hanging out with those trouble maker neighbors of yours who force you to eat cheese and drink booze you would hit your goals much sooner.

    Thank god they’re leaving for two weeks! sheesh!

    1. Seriously! I was just saying last night that I need to take advantage of your absence & lose a bunch of weight, since I’m sure as hell not losing it lately! 🙂
