It's done...Week #1 of the "Time to Get F*&king Serious" Training plan is in the books. I had planned on 2 swims, 2 bikes and 3 runs along with some stretching and core work. I came close to completeing that goal.
Here is week #1 by the numbers...
Monday: Swim 1200 yds, Run 5 miles
Tuesday: Stretching and Core
Wednesday: Run 5.66 miles
Thursday: Swim 1700 yds, Run 5 miles @ tempo
Saturday: Run 10 miles
Sunday: Supposed to ride my bike, but Father's Day got in the way.
I was able to get 2 swims in and 4 runs, but failed to get a bike ride in. This week will be a challenging week as well as I won't be getting any running done over the weekend unless you call dashing between Papas and Beer, Mango-Mango and Hussong's down in Ensenada, Mexico...running. I will get a good bike ride in on Wednesday night when I head over to Griffith Park and ride there.
Over the weekend, I found that I have a new obsession...swim goggles. I ended up purchasing 3 new pair this weekend (helps having a son who works at Sport Chalet). I needed a new primary pair and found 3 that I wanted to try. I tested them all in my home pool yesterday afternoon and put them to the test in the gym pool this morning. I will report back on those in the future.
