Yours looks very ambitious! You are certainly doing a lot more long runs than me! I can barely get 5 miles in as it is.

And... sometimes... I skip something. Well, I will skip 1 of those swim workouts typically. Although I told myself I have to STOP that with my Olympic distance tri just 2 months away.

KSH--I'll skip a workout here or there too. I wish I was up to riding 64 miles already!

HA! HA! HA! Who said I AM?!

I did a 60 mile ride with hills a couple of weeks back, I barely finished. I was seriously on my last leg for the last 10 miles. My thighs were burning so bad. It was painful!

Easy 5 miles on the trails this afternoon. Storm blowing in but it's warm, so it felt good to get blown all around.

OK, I'll play:

Monday: weight training and easy run

Tuesday: Day Off! (it's supposed to snow)

Wednesday: run and probably weight training

Thursday: sit on a plane all day!

Friday: sit in a conference all day and evening thinking about how nice it would be to run instead of talk about superior internal customer service blah blah blah!

Saturday: sit in a conference all morning and afternoon then a plane all evening!

Sunday: run on the beach in Cali!

Monday: repeat Sunday!

Tuesday: repeat Sunday!

Wednesday: sit on a plane all day!

Hum.

I'm six weeks away from my first official half-marathon now (although I've run the distance before). As the weather gets better and better I have more motivation to cycle and less to run. Let's come up with a plan for the week so I have something to be accountable for.

TODAY

Relaxed bike ride to rest.

TUESDAY - 27

7am: Run 7km.

WEDNESDAY - 28

Swim 1000m or rest.

THURSDAY - 29

Will depend on the weather. Either easy 30 min run or bike ride.

FRIDAY - 30

Run some speedwork, 45min.

SATURDAY 31

Long bike ride (3h)

SUNDAY 1st

Long run (1h30)

We'll see...

OK..I will play too...

Monday-rest

Tuesday-lift weights, swim intervals hard

Wed-trail run intervals hard, 1.5 hours mt biking

Thursday-recovery run, lift weights

Friday-rest or easy ride

Saturday-long easy swim, long slow trail run

Sunday-sufferfest mt bike ride, probably 2-3 hours

I may move my Saturday run to a post sufferfest brick. Next week is an easy week....yea!

yep, I can have two rest days if I want them cuz I be "older" he he he....turn 45 and you can have two rest days too.....
