My running week started out with a thud because of the DNF but because of it I’ve changed my MS Excel worksheet to include swimming and cycling. So my journey begins. I’m going to start doing what I should have done before even attempting the TRI, train. Monday I start working with a swim coach and will meet with her every Monday and Wednesday working first in the pool and then eventually in the open water. That’s the plan anyhow.
I’ve not figured out how I will measure the swimming,so I’ll have to figure that out once I see what the training is going to look like.
Twenty one running miles this week; The bike rides were actually both on Sunday; to and from the triathlon. I just didn’t feel like combining them onto one day. Since I have a half marathon coming up on April 9 I’m going in the a training spike for the next week. I’ve got to get allot of hill’s in because I’m sure that this run at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton will include a run up a mountain we joyfully called Mt. MotherF@#&er when I was stationed as a young SEABEE on Camp Pendleton. Although I’m excited to see the hill’s, yes plural, again; I would be lying if I told you I was excited to run up them; at 19 with a full pack and a M60 it about killed me. I’m pretty sure you you can imagine how they got their names Old Smokey and The Reaper.
