IMC Training Week 1
Swim: 7250 yards
Bike: 94 miles
Run: 7.4 miles
3 solid swim days. I would have more miles on the bike but I had 2 flats that week. (I finally got a new tire!) I was still recovering from the marathon and not wanting to run a lot of miles. That 7.4 miles was tacked onto the end of a bike ride at our usual brick work out on Saturday. Welcome back to running with A LOT of elevation gain through the trails.
IMC Training Week 2
Swim: 4500 yards
Bike: 48 miles
Run: 23.2 miles
This was Ragnar Keys week. Usual work outs at the beginning of the week before leaving for Florida.
IMC Training Week 3
Swim: 7450 yards
Bike: 45 miles
Back to work. Base building until April!
A couple great swims with a 1000 time trial in one session. I had never done a 1000TT before. I was not sure how to pace it or how it would go. I put a time on it but had no idea if I could hit that number or not. I did with time to spare. I was super excited. I tried not to go out too fast so I could pick it up a little at the end. I probably could have done it a little faster but I was more than happy with my time!!
Solid trainer rides. I have been having a problem with my power meter so I still have little data on that front but should be all fixed tomorrow. (crossing my fingers). It is so different riding the trainer with friends than on my own. So.Much.Better!!
Tuesday/Thursday runs were great. My 9 miler (part of the brick) was tough. It was pouring rain. I had low energy. On the trails again. I was happy to have survived! What does not kill us only makes us stronger. (I just keep telling myself that!)
I did 2 pi-yo classes and the core session from my coach (which included 9.5 minutes of planks–broken up). What I don’t count on the core sessions: is a core routine from my old Friday morning class and The Dozen routine. I usually do those 1-2x a week depending on how much time I have!
How has your training been lately??
Has anyone tried “The Dozen” routine?
