Week 1 of 20 is done; hay in the barn so to speak. My focus this week was on ramping up my bike miles. I had a little extra time in my schedule so I made it to three computrainer sessions in one week. By the third one I was really feeling the extra bike miles. I have a general plan for my weekly training but since my schedule was more flexible than usual I kind of altered the plan for the week. Here are the details for the week:
Swim: 3 miles/ 1:57
Bike: 101 miles/6:34
Run: 20 miles/3:20
Total: 124 miles/11:51
I also finally made it back to the trails. I had been working on my running form for the last 4 weeks and really haven’t done any running since the 50K on November 20th. I didn’t stick to the plan as best as I probably should have but I really concentrated on my form during all my running this week. Overall I think I am on the right track. I can feel when I am doing it right (at least I think I am doing it right), and I definitely felt it in my calves which is an indicator I may be finally getting off my heels!
Overall I felt pretty good this week. My long ride was not as long as I had hoped but life just got in the way that day. This next week will be a little off as well due to the holidays being off work (first week off in 18 months!!!). One week down, 19 to go.
