I don't know, but I better figure it out. I know that part of the reason I haven't been swimming is that I don't have a goal triathlon picked out. I have a list of local, good beginning triathlons, but I don't have my work schedule past the end of June so I really can't plan. Without a goal, it's tough to get myself in the pool. I need a swift kick in the pants, preferably while next to a pool so I fall into it against my will. Then I'll swim.
Otherwise, for a week that started out rough with a lack of motivation, I held it together decently. I had a great long run and I did do a full hour of weights. And I biked, but only once. At least I'm back in the habit of getting up at 4:30. That should serve me well this week.
By the numbers:
Miles run (completed/planned): 27/28
Days of Week I Ran: 7/7
Long run: 1/1
Speed work/tempo: 1/2 Speed work completed at goal time: 1/1
Hill Work: 0/0 (think I'll start working these into my daily miles)
Biking sessions: 1/2
Swimming sessions: 0/1
Days I Ate Healthfully and Sparingly: 2/7 (better start paying attention to this....starting Tuesday, because tomorrow I'm going out to dinner w/ the girls!)
Main goal for this week: get in the pool!!
Monday (dinner plans): 6 miles with 4 @ 8:45, hills on w/u and c/d
Wednesday (long call): 3 x 1600m @ 8 min pace w/ 1 min RI
Thursday: weights (new routine), swim
Friday: weights, spinning class (5:45pm)
Saturday (day off): 20 miles @ 10:00 pace
Sunday (long call): bike hill intervals (30 min)
Once again, I look at the paces for the speedwork and tempo runs and think 'how the heck am I going to pull that off'? This "Run Less, Run Faster" plan is something serious. The work-outs seem overwhelming but w/ only 3 a week it's possible to be physically and emotionally prepared for them. But you really shouldn't plan on doing two of them in a row! Rest days imperative!
