Weekly Training Log March 13-19

Well, the second week of my triathlon training plan has not gone so well.  Sunday we got home late from visiting friends for the weekend and I couldn't muster up the energy to get on the bike for a 90 minute ride at 9:30PM.  By Tuesday, all three of us had come down with bronchitis.  It is worse today (Sunday) than it was all week so it's not looking to be a very productive start to this week either.  Also, we now have our yearly flood in the basement so that knocks out running on the treadmill and using my trainer.  I wish we either had a larger house where we could move it to the main floor or a basement that stayed dry in the spring!  Anyway, here's the week:

Sunday: none
Monday: Swim 2500yds; Run 40 minutes on treadmill, 4.25 miles
Tuesday: Run 3 miles, outside, 29:40
Wednesday: Bike 60 minutes on trainer, 18.36 miles
Thursday, Friday & Saturday: none- sick

Weekly totals:
Swim: 2500yds
Bike: 18.36 miles
Run: 7.25 miles

Hopefully this crud is at its peak today and I will start feeling better soon.  I'm looking forward to feeling better and getting back on track!

Weekly Training Log March 6-13

The first official week of the triathlon program I'm following started on Monday the 7th.  I'm happy to say I made it through the first week!  My running miles will be a little higher than the program I'm following because I incorporated a marathon training program into this as well.  Here's the week:

Thurs: Ran 11 miles on treadmill, 1:46:27- My longest run without walking EVER!

This week went MUCH better.  Almost everything worked out as planned.  Here's the week:

Run: 12.07

And since the last day of February was Tuesday, here are February's totals:
Swim: 5150
Bike: 75.27
Run: 17.52
I was a little disappointed in February's totals until I remembered that I had taken the first two weeks completely off for my knee.  Luckily I have no recurrence of pain since I started up again (Knock on wood!)

This Monday officially starts the 20-week triathlon training program!  There's no messing around now.  I start right out with 3 days of two workouts per day and over 7 hours of training this coming week.  Now if the weather will just cooperate...
