Training Goals: 8/3 – 8/9

July 27 – August 2, 2009

Monday: strength training – FAIL! Too hot to move. DAMN!

Tuesday: morning track workout (virtually w/ JM) – I did run 4.4 miles, but not a track workout. I switched my Tuesday & Thursday runs.

Wednesday: final pre-triathlon open water swim. This time with her & her & her & him, so probably I won’t die. – SUCCESS!

Thursday: morning easy run. evening yoga. – Did a great morning track workout. I may have mentioned it earlier.Yoga was canceled due to heat.

Friday: rest day. stretching & icing. – Success here, too. I’m good at rest days! (I also did stretch & ice.)

Saturday: triathlon. *gulp* – More success than I could’ve imagined.

Sunday: 8-10 mile long, slow run. – FAIL! Took another day off due to hangover + I did a triathlon yesterday, so I decided to skip it. It was a step-back week, so I feel okay with that decision.

August 3 – August 9, 2009

This week’s schedule subject to change after a meeting with Alisa. πŸ™‚

Monday: Strength training post-work. Hopefully it won’t be too hot. Maybe I should hit the gym?

Tuesday: morning track workout. This time I will not do a mile time trial, and instead will try to get through the paces consistently.

Wednesday: bike to work, I think. Maybe a swim?

Thursday: easy morning run, PM yoga.

Friday: trail run – it’s been a few weeks, I’m really looking forward to it.

Saturday: bike ride with the architect, bikram with JM I think.

Sunday: long run – 16 miles.

I don’t have a day off scheduled this week, which is something I am trying to avoid, but since I took the previous Sunday off, I didn’t want to take my traditional Monday off. I hope that works out!

  1. A few weeks without rest days are okay but I find that if I try to schedule too many workouts without breaks I take the breaks anyway =).

    Tuesday, I’ll see you at the FM.

    • I find the same thing about myself, but since I took yesterday off, I’m sure I can do 7 days in a row, since I’ll take next Monday off as well.

      See you tomorrow for our planning session. I wish I had another tri- planned!

  2. you ran your first triathlon! take a few days and enjoy it.

  3. Looks like a great week of training. Congrats on your tri.

  4. oy, bikram!! how about just doing yoga outside in our crazy heat πŸ™‚

  5. I think as long as you stay away from your neighbors and their swiny vodka you should be able to meet your goals for the week. And if you don’t it’s ok too because you are a fancy triathlete and things.

  6. I have been thinking about doing Bikram, but let’s face it – if I did yoga in my bedroom any one of the last few nights It would basically be the same thing.
