MASTER PLANNER


I think sometime that I spend as much time reading and planning as I do actually training. Yesterday I realized that there is ONLY 36 weeks until Steelhead 70.3. So the frenzy began. Will I be ready? I know this is a challenge unlike any other that I have tried. The reason for this is the swim.

Ah--- the swim. I have to be honest and say that I wish that I was farther along. I see big workouts being done but I'm not there yet. My big accomplishment last week at master's swim was to complete 50 without stopping. I have such a long way to go. I have read you need to work hardest on your weakest so I think I need to increase for awhile my swim from 3 to 4 times per week.

The rest of the plan I have broken apart and as always is written in PENCIL because it changes often.

The next 6 weeks will be focused on continued weight loss and the swim. I have found a swim building plan on Beginnertriathlete.com. It has drill and workouts. Team Weight loss continues until Jan 1 at the gym. I will add some spin and running.

The next 10 weeks will be building up. I need to be at consistantly training approximately 7 hours per week. Still working on details. I am hoping Santa will bring me a bike trainer for Christmas.

The Final Section :Duration: 140 days (20 weeks)This plan comprises 7-10 hours per week of training. I have downloaded a training plan from beginnertriathlete.com. Week 1 will be March 24th.

Tri-Waddling for 36 weeks.............

Saturday : Run = 5 miles
Sunday : Brick : 500m swim drills then to 60 min. Spin class ( zone 2 endurance)

Sometimes the planning is as much fun as the doing. I actually wrote a bit about this a couple weeks ago when talking about Peter Drucker. You are doing well. You know where to work.

Keep with the plan...and keep paying attention to what you need.

And see if Rudolph can light up a bike trainer :-)

OMG!Doesn't it put things in perspective when you break it down by weeks (weaks) or days? PLEASE! Don't remind me!
