Every year I come up with multiple plans and training ideas. This is part 1a that will last 11 weeks until Jan.1.

Main Goal- Weight loss, good base, improve form, and strength
Monday - Team Weight Loss = 60 min.
Tuesday- Swim Class = 45 min.
Wednesday- Team Weight Loss = 60 min.
Thursday - Run/ Swim = 60 min.
Friday - Team Weight Loss = 60 min.
Saturday - Run = 60-120 min.
Sunday - Spin / Swim = 90 min.

Add 3-4 times of core and strength training.

Disclaimer- as always this plan is written in pencil and edited by personal life.

Waddling with a plan...................

Saturday - Spin = 45 min.

Sunday - Run = 5.5 miles & Swim = 30 min.

plus 3-4 times per week core & strength?!?! Oh.My.Gosh. In my book, that's pretty impressive. I think core/strength is the hardest thing to get motivated to do.

Planning is great and that's one ambitious plan you have there.

I'm not seeing a rest day in there. Are you just assuming something will come up to keep from training at least 1 time/week? You do need a rest day.

If you pull off that plan with a 1 day a week "didn't make it because" you will be in phenomenal shape in a few months.

Don't you have to sometimes wonder how hard it is to try to be healthy and live longer? Good job on all your goals though. I know I go through all this "planning" stuff every year too. We 50 somethings have to rule!

Great plan!! My plans are always written in pencil too. :-) Thanks for commenting on my blog. Not a lot of people do, so it is always nice to get feedback. I'm glad I waddled onto your page. :-)

Take care,

Now THAT is a plan!!!!!

:) Like 21st Century mom said - you need a rest day because a rest day is just as important as a training day.

:) Do not get burnt out!

Great post!

I think triathlon is the perfect sport for those who like to plan things out.I plan and plan and plan some more.

Some say it's the perfect sport for an Obsessive compulsive person. Whatever that is!!

Say, just came across this today!

Written by the race director of the marathon I'm running on Saturday, it relates to how well he felt served in the Louisville IM! And you were part of the team that served him! Thought you would enjoy this!!

Plans written in pencil are REAL!
That's a lot of hours! I am counting 9 or so!
But it's always good to plan big and then feel good about just having to miss a couple workouts! Good luck and happy training!
