Week 5 Triathlon Training

This was the first week that I followed Coach Russ' plan. For the most part, it matched up with what I had been doing distance wise, but he included many more intervals and a LONG bike ride on Sunday. He also has his own strength training program that kicked my butt this week and took over an hour to do both times.

Swim: 4200 yds (2.4 miles)
Bike: 100.3 miles
Run: 10.8 miles
Climb: 1.5 hours at the gym

Triathlon Training Week 4

So much for an easy week...

Biking: 137.4 miles (yikes!)
Swimming: 3300 yards (1.875 miles)
Running: 12 miles

This week marks a milestone in my training. I decided to hire a coach. For the last six years I've done everything on my own (well, with Dan's help and MANY magazines and websites), but I've decided to get some professional help (I need all the help I can get!). Monday marks the first day of his training plan for me. I'm a little nervous, but I just talked to him and it seems in line with what I've been doing. Right now the 50-60 mile ride on Sunday is making me a bit nervous. Well, a lot nervous. But, I guess it's what I need to start doing. Woo hoo! 16 weeks until the big day!
