Deviations From the Plan

Posted by Active Belle Dec 4, 2007

Week Two Workouts (11/26-12/2)

 

-I swapped Monday and Tuesday's workouts, and Wednesday and Thursday's workouts, so I am swimming on Mon/wed and running / cycling on Tues and Thurs.

-I did ActiveX on Friday instead of resting.

-I did not get the chance to run on Saturday.

-My bike workouts were longer and more intense than they were supposed to be.

 

Week Three workouts (12/3-12/9)

 

-I missed my Wednesday swim

-I rested on Thursday as well

-I did my bike ride and strength training on Friday instead of Thursday.

-I plan to do the Saturday run and the Sunday ride as planned.

 

Thoughts and Questions:

 

Swim: I like having my swims on Monday and Wednesday so I would like to stick with that.

 

Strength: I am still trying to fit ActiveX into my schedule but I am not sure how that will conflict with climbing in the future. Plus one of the ActiveX days is Friday, which is supposed to be my rest day.

 

Bike: I ride with a lot of people who are better than me, when should I go alone and when is it OK to push myself on what is supposed to be a low intensity ride?

 

Yoga: Finally, If I wanted to get in on an occasional yoga class, what would be the best day for that?

 

On another note: I signed up for Wildflower  over the weekend--even though every time I mention it, people tell me it is one of the most difficult triathlons out there...and even though I read this article  about the race.

 

Looks like I will have to do a lot of hill training to prepare. Bring it on!
