Another week of triathlon training completed! Only 10 more weeks to go!
My Training Schedule for Week 1 (6/3-6/9)
Monday: 5.18 mile bike ride at 9.3 avg mph
Tuesday: 1.95 mile run at 13’16” avg pace
Wednesday: Bike 3.5 miles at 7.4 avg mph and run 1 mile at 13’48” pace
Thursday: Swimming laps in between playing with the kids in the pool (okay, not the best “training,” but I am a mom)!
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 2.14 mile run at 14’00” avg pace
Fun Moments: On my Monday evening bike ride, a neighborhood kid saw me and was amazed that a grown-up was out riding a bike. He asked if I wanted to race to the end of the street. After I said “sure” and he beat me while doing a lot of coasting, he was overjoyed at winning a race and I couldn’t stop laughing for the next mile.
Training Highs: Once again, on my Monday ride, I hit 9.3 avg mph and the SLIGHT incline that has been challenging for me was so much easier than it had been in the past. I came home feeling like the bike portion of the triathlon is going to be do-able!
Training Lows: During my run on Saturday, I tripped over a piece of tile. I scraped up my shin pretty bad and broke my phone screen protector (and sliced my thumb on the glass the next day because I waited to take it off). Considering how clumsy I am, I am surprised this was my first running injury!
I cannot wait to see what this week has in store!
Onward! Upward! For the Glory of Christ!
