In my training, the hardest thing for me to grasp is running by time not distance. In my training plan, tomorrow a beginner would run 30 minutes and an intermediate would run 60 minutes. I have been going closer to the intermediate because of how slow that I run. I wonder though because I am so slow what should my mileage be. Here is my question:

If you were told to go on a 30 minute run(ZONE 2)--how far would you go??

My answer: 3 miles Although it takes 35-40 min

Waddling and wondering.............

This will be week #5 in my Iron training. As I glance at the week ahead, I notice increases in my weekly workouts. My Tuesday 30 min run and my Thursday 30 min bike both change to 45 minutes. My long weekend stuff increases the run to 90 min. and the bike to 1:45. My other goal for the week is to get to Master's swim earlier or at least on time to get some more distance completed.

I have been feeling the increases in the strength of my legs. At times they do feel like they are getting stronger and other times they are just more tired. Sounds weird doesn't it.

There is just 4 weeks until my first Tri of the year which is Subaru Sprint in Naperville. it feels good to start with one close to home.

Waddling into a new week.............
