I was bragging to Ken about how I completely nailed my first week of Ironman Training. He laughed, it was only week one, so it was easy.
Once again, I am not really following a plan to a T. Being married to a training schedule is not how I like to roll. Instead, I like to use a few different plans as a guide for what I should be doing each week.
Currently I am mainly using Be Iron Fit by Don Fink.
Without further ado, the stats from the first week:
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: 5 mile run on a snow day
Wednesday: 30 minute spin in the morning; 1500 m swim in the evening
Thursday: 1 hour spin on the trainer
Friday: 1600 m swim
Saturday: 1:15 minutes on the trainer; 15 minute transition run; 4 mile hike with Ken and Kya
Sunday: 7 mile run
Our snow does not really look like it is going to be melting anytime soon, so I will be at the gym pretty much everyday for the next few weeks.
The life of an Ironman.
