So I think I have found a good schedule for me. It is an Olympic based training plan that has a balanced workout schedule, meaning I swim, bike and run three times a week. The 9th is a Monday.
Tuesday is a long swim. Mostly intervals, but always has a drill set in there (still loving the closed fist drill)
Wednesday Medium run, and this is a focus of mine, I have been adding repeats to this workout because I really want to get faster on the run portion.
Thursday is a medium swim and a short bike
Friday is my longest run.
Saturday is a long bike and short run
Sunday is rest day.
Some interesting things about this schedule:
- I find it weird to call a 7 mile run, my long run after my marathon training.
- I purposely decided to go run heavy on the back end of the week because I wanted to get used to running on tired legs.
- I did not intend to swim three times a week, however; the extra fitness should have me coming out of the water in better shape and not grasping for air.
- Once the weather gets nicer, the Saturday bike/run brick will benefit me alot.
resolveattitude has been totally different this year than any year in the past.
