Vineman 70.3 Training is in Full Swing

I cant believe it's been so long since I have written anything, probably since I have been so busy with real world stuff. I started my Vineman 70.3 training plan on April 5 and so far it has been going fairly well. I am doing 9 workouts over 6 days with Friday being my only rest day. This is what my typical week looks like:

Monday - A.M. - Swim,   P.M. - Bike
Tuesday - A.M. -Long Swim
Wednesday - Brick Workout with the LA Tri Club
Thursday - A.M. - Swim,  P.M. - Run
Friday - Off
Saturday - Long Bike
Sunday - Long Run

I feel as if things are coming together, but the July 17 race date is rapidly approaching and I still have a long way to go until I feel confident about this race.

I have been fortunate enough to have meet some great people on twitter and we have met up for some longer bike rides. Last week, I finally got to meet and ride with Rebecca, her husband Ron and Stuart out in the Conejo Valley. It was nice to be able to ride with some new faces and Rebecca took us for a nice, not easy 35 mile ride. TheWhen it was done, I felt that I had gotten a great workout and up to then, that was my longest ride. Thanks again for not dropping me! Can't wait to do it again...hopefully soon.

Becca and I rolling to a quick water stop...a much needed break for me!

 Me, Becca and Ron

I know that you can do it, but I readily admit I could not handle your training schedule. Keep up the good work!
