Here's is a copy of todays workout. Keep in mind my focus is Florida Ironman in November. This set's the distance, the intensity and the order of the workout. My secondary focus is racing Xterra offroad Tri's which is a 800 meter swim.

I got off to a great start in February. I had 8 swim sessions, 7 Bike workouts and 11 runs. The winter weather had me moving the training schedule around and I lost some riding days. I tried to get my core workout every other day.
Going into March my race schedule starts and I have a race each weekend. Depending on the race I will work in a long bike ride 1 or 2 days before or afterwards. I will also add a brick work mid week, where I complete a bike and follow with a run. Depending on the schedule on want to get 2 long runs, 15 to 18 miles. As you can see it will be a busy month. My training goal will be to build up to a strong 4 hour session.
