Just when I think I have this whole “training for an Ironman” thing down I get a few curveballs thrown my way and realize that I need not ever get too ahead of myself.
Last week was a solid week. I was so pumped that I hit all of my numbers dead on. To be honest it had me thinking that I was just cruising from one week to the next.
This week has much more family obligations thrown into the mix. No biggie. Just means I will be spending a ton of my bike time on the trainer. Good thing I do not hate it as much as I use to.
Wednesday – swim 1hr /run 30 min
Thursday – run 1 hr (a.m.) / TIMETRIAL event 1 hr(p.m.)
Friday – swim 1 hr / bike (course marshal for local 5k)
Saturday – bike 3hr30min (trainer starting well before it gets light out)
Sunday – run 2hr
Total for week 20 = 13 hours
So even with lots of other obligations happening around me I vowed to not let my training take over my life and time spent with family and friends. No one promised that I would actually be awake at these gatherings... LOL.
Btw – Thursdays TimeTrial will be a first for me. I plan on getting to the event early and warming up. The course is an out and back with rolling hills for a total distance of 10 miles. This should be good!
Now back to juggling all these balls in the air....
