At long last....I know you've all been patiently waiting for this :)
Last week's plan was for 16.25 hours, and I came very close, although traded some cycling time for some running time, getting in a total of 16 hours and 155 miles....
Swimming: Plan 4.5 hours
Actual 4.5 hours, 5.28 miles
Good swimming week. Not too much to add, other than thanks again to Kevin and his masters group in Naples for letting me drop in for the day.
Cycling: Plan 7.75 hours
Actual 8.41 hours, 130.72 miles
It's all about the bike. Extra time was mainly from fighting the wind on my long ride. Great training for the race in case it's windy (let's start praying now that it's not).
Running: Plan 4 hours
Actual 3.08 hours, 19 miles
Moving my long run to Wednesday worked out great; unfortunately moving Wednesday's short run to Saturday not so much, since I didn't do it :-(
Although I've been great about hitting my key workouts (e.g. long runs), which I've NEVER missed, I haven't been so great with a handful of the shorter runs. Even though they're filler to a certain extent, they still play a part in overall training volume. I promise I'll be better in the next few weeks....
Live with purpose....Enjoy the adventure....
