Well, last week was a decent workout week, but it was NOT a good triathlon training week. Week 2 of my â€œ6 weeks to an Olympic Triathlonâ€ training plan shouldâ€™ve gone like this (but actually went like this):
- Monday: Lift, Run, and Swim (Actual: Short Run)
- Tuesday: Run (Actual: Sick Day)
- Wednesday: Lift and Swim (Actual: Short Run)
- Thursday: Rest (Actual: Sick Day)
- Friday: Recover Bike (Actual: Run)
- Saturday: Lift, Swim, Bike (Actual: Bike)
- Sunday: Rest (Actual: Run)
Although I got my miles and bike ride in, I missed out on all my swims and all my weightlifting per the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge.
I refused during marathon training to freak out over one bad week of training, and I refuse to do it now! Especially because Iâ€™m a month away from the race, there is penalty of time to recover from a not-so-great (or none existent!) week.
Today was a triathlon training reboot kind of day!
I did the â€œLegsâ€ day of the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge, ran 3.0 miles in 27:30 minutes on the treadmill, and swam 750 meters in 15 minutes. The whole thing took about 1:15 (including changing time!), and I felt great afterwards! So accomplished. I was suppose to do 1,500 meters, but I didnâ€™t have the energy to squeeze it out (it was a rough day).
On to food!
Afternoon snacks were a Glo bar:
And a taco shell dipped in salsa (weird, but itâ€™s what I was craving and we didnâ€™t have chips!):
And dinner was made by the Husband! Thank you, Husband! 🙂
I had a veggie burger on a Arnold Sandwich Thin with roasted tomatoes, cheese, and mustard. As well as parsnip fries, corn on the cob, and a pickle!
I night also have a small pour of cerealâ€¦ Iâ€™m still feeling munchy.
And now I am OFF to watch TV â€“ so beat! :) Have a nice night.
