To the best of my recollection, this is what I’ve done to prepare for the May 1st St. Anthony’s Triathlon:
Tuesday Feb 22 – 6.15 Miles with Cedrik and Erica. Shwetty.
Saturday Feb 19 – Half Triathlon ( 1/2 Mile Swim, 12 Mile Bike, 3 Mile run) Swim/bike was a breeze, but the run was quite rough. Legs were like WTF?
Thursday Feb 17 – 6 Mile Run with Erica to Bayshore. No prob
Tuesday Feb 15 – 6 mile run at 6 am with Cedrik and Erika. Best run yet.
Sunday Feb 13 – 5.5 mile run to Davis Islands with Erica. Mildly miserable.
Thursday Feb 10- 6.2 miles (10 K) with Erica through Downtown
Tuesday Feb 8 – 4 miles through neighborhood with Erica. Felt sick when I started. Felt sicker at the end.
Sunday Feb 6 – 5.6 mile run to Davis Islands with Erica. This is the first run since I’ve begun training that felt invigorating. I could have gone a couple more miles easily. The four day rest really helped me cross a physical and psychological barrier.
Saturday Feb 5- One mile swim (64 laps) at Interbay YMCA.
Friday Feb 4 – Four miles with Erica. Legs have recovered and I felt strong.
Monday Jan 31 – Four miles with Erica. Legs felt dead. Will not run for a few days.
Sunday Jan 30 – Six miles to Davis Islands with Erica. Still no fun.
Saturday Jan 29- 25 Miles on bike at the Suncoast Parkway. Very discouraging. Slower than my first ride on this trail, but 100 minutes riding hard must be worth something.
Friday Jan 28 – Four miles with Erica. Went home, called in sick and slept until noon.
Wednesday Jan 26- 30 Minute treadmill at YMCA
Monday Jan 24- Four miler with Cedric. Very hurty.
Sunday Jan 23 – 5.4 mile run from home to Davis Island’s Dog Park (solo) Took exactly one hour.
Saturday Jan 22 – One mile swim (64 laps) at Interbay YMCA in 40 minutes
Friday Jan 21 – One hour of spinning with Wendy Ryan at Hyde Park Gym
Wednesday Jan 19 – 30 minutes on treadmill at 1.5 incline
Monday Jan 17 – 3 mile run with Cedric working on speed. Very tough
Sunday Jan 16 – 6.9 run with Cedrik and Erica
Saturday Jan 15 – One mile swim at Interbay YMCA
Friday Jan 14 – Four mile run with Cedrik and Erica
Wednesday Jan 12 – Four mile run with Cedric and Erica
