How did Week 2 go for you?
I did AWESOME. So proud of myself for hitting all my goals this week.
As a reminder, we’re working towards swimming, biking, and running the total distances for the Ironman triathlon over the course of an entire month. That means the goal for this week was to do:
I did a total of six sports over four days of exercise; therefore, two of my workouts were multi-sport. I did one swim/run and a bike/run. I’m definitely aiming to do as many multisport days as possible because I believe this will make a big difference come race day!
Swimming: 1000 yards
Biking: Two spin classes
Running: 6.6 miles
I’ve been struggling with soreness and have been doing one day of exercise followed by one day off. This seems to be helping a lot and will hopefully allow me to get over this fitness plateau and onto bigger and better things! I think I just need to push myself a bit… into a higher level of strength and endurance… and in a week or so, these workouts should feel like a walk in the park (and then I’ll step it up again!).
How was your workout week?
One of my fave double workouts was a run followed by a swim. I know it is not triathalon order, but my legs felt so much better the next day than when I just ran. I think the cool
water and pressure helped with the recovery.
