Last week wasn't terribly successful in terms of meeting the schedule I'd set myself, and consequently I only clocked around 5 hours of training (what a difference to the time put in missing the long bike ride makes!). On the plus side, I did listen to my body and make sensible decisions re biking when it was icy. All of the swimming sessions were completed. I missed the run home from work as I wasn't sure that my legs had 100% recovered. The plan for today was a 2-3 hour bike with the tri club, but when I woke up and saw that most of the slower people had dropped out, I wasn't too keen. Also, it was icy, and another cycling club had cancelled their rides which made me feel dubious about whether or not it was sensible to go out. I also woke up feeling a bit tired, so probably should have taken a rest day, but I swam anyway. Which I kind of regretted as it certainly wasn't the best swim. And then I came out with legs that wanted to go cycling. Oh well. Hopefully the twitchy feeling will translate to a good run tomorrow night!
Once again, I'm joining with Carrie from Fitness and Frozen Grapes and putting down on paper my plans for this week in "WIDDIU" - Write it down, do it up. Planning is definitely going to be key to make sure I get some training done during December which is going to be a busy month. Here's the plan for my week:
Monday - am: 45 min swim (main set of 2(3x300) with the middle 300 each time pull only); pm: 3.5 or 5k run after work.
Tuesday - am: 45 min swim (main set of breathing pattern work).
Wednesday - am: 45 min swim (recovery/easy swimming); pm: run home from work (7k)
Thursday - am: 75-90 min swim (1k drills, 6x600 off 10:15, warm down)
Friday - am: 45 min swim (drills/endurance)
Saturday - am: 3.5k or 5k run; lunchtime: 2.5k-3k swim with Tuna Friend Fiona
Sunday - am: bike.
