And it's going to kick my hiney.
It's fairly straight forward though -
- Monday - kickboxing and 100 intervals at the pool with a WU and CD
- Tuesday - .5 mile run intervals with a WU and CD and .5 "rests" in between
- Wednesday - kickboxing and bike intervals (courtesy of Coach Tom)
- Thursday - Off
- Friday - kickboxing and long swim (no less than 2000)
- Saturday - 40k bike
- Sunday - long run
Each week, the swim and run intervals increase, as does the long run. No bricks yet... just want to build my endurance and speed a little first. I'll check myself at the end of the month and plan from there.
I don't use a coach and to be quite honest, I'd love one but just don't have the money to spend on monthly coaching. I know that self coaching has its downfalls, mainly being the ability to know how hard to push yourself without someone telling you to hit a certain interval, but I'm confident I'll kick my own ass. I know when I'm pushing myself and I'm keeping track of everything so I can constantly test where I'm at and adjust.
For instance, I did 10x100's at the pool today and nearly died. Okay, I'm lying, but I looked back at the same workout last March and I was about :05 slower on average today.
With a plan in place, I feel like a triathlete again. That and the countdown on my desk that says 132 days until my first race. Oye ve!
