Until starting formal coaching/training in January, I am using some rough guidelines form my coach through November and December for a phase I am calling “Pre-Base Building.” The goal is approximately 3 hours swimming, 3.5 hours cycling (one long @ 90 mins) and 3.5 hours running (one long @ 90 mins). I’m not following those numbers to a “T” but it’s nice to have some training targets again as I work to get back into a routine.
Took advantage of lunch hour for a nice little run (6.2K) followed by Selkies masters swim after work (2050m).
Tuesday 11/6 – run,
Met the 5am girls for our usual (10K) Fairy Lake plus a special guest visitor Kelly.
I started randomly feeling sick later in the morning and spent most of the day on the couch. Had to scrap the trainer ride.
Made up for Tuesday’s missed trainer ride before (20.4K) before masters swim (2350m).
Thursday 11/8 – run
Met up with Kelly for another 5am run and pushed the pace a bit – I was feeling it and 8K was enough for this day. Thanks Kel. 😉
That night we had our end-of-clinic Bring Your Own Bling celebration.
Hopped on the trainer again after work (15K) then headed to the pool for a solo continuous endurance swim of 2450m.
Saturday 11/10 – bike
Tackled my long ride for the week on the trainer with a movie for entertainment. 40K sweat-fest.
Sunday 11/11 – run
Met up with the group for a long run (20K). We were treated to a gorgeous, mild, sunny morning – very rare in November!
Swim 3x for 6850m in 2:32:37
Bike 3x for 75.4K (46.9mi) in 2:51:12
Run 4x for 44.3K (27.5mi) in 4:08:21
