So this is the beginning of my training diary. Probably boring for many but perhaps interesting to some. The main focus for the next month or so is my running as I have the Rehobeth Beach Marathon on Dec 11th. I also felt that my run was neglected during my last Ironman cycle. Let me know if you have any questions.
Week Oct 15th - 21st.
Saturday Oct 15th - Long run home from the store. Gradually increasing mileage to build for Rehobeth Beach Marathon in December. Run 14.21miles @6:46min/miles
Sunday Oct 16th - Easy cruising ride with Ace and Brian. Road bike feels a little odd still after riding the tri bike since March. 40miles.
Monday Oct 17th - Monday Night Parvilla Cycle & Multisport ride. Again the road bike. Short brick run at an easy pace. Ride 20miles Run 3.25miles
Tuesday Oct 18th - Easy swim at lunch. Just turning the arms over. Only time for short evening run so did some fartleks. Run 4.02miles
Wednesday Oct 19th - Another swim at lunch. First harder session since Ironman included some 100's. Again short run (in the rain) went easy but still under 7min/miles. Run 5.03miles
Thursday Oct 20th - Mile repeats x 6.....in the dark on unlit sidewalks! Harder to push the pace but ran @6:00min/miles. Run 9.52miles
Friday Oct 21st - Hill repeats in Bowie (the one hill!) x 6. Legs still feeling good after 18 runs in 21 days. Run 4.38miles
Weekly Run Miles: 40.41
Weekly Run Time: 4hrs 37mins
Total Time: 9hrs 19mins
