My first week of training went well. I have to admit, I underestimated my abilities, and I am in better shape than I thought I was in. I adjusted my training plan a bit to compensate for this fact and make it more challenging. I am sure I will make more adjustments as I go along. I also started tracking my times and am keeping a pace log. This way I can estimate my race time, and work on improving in time as well as distance.
This week’s training completed:
- 2 days weight training
- 1 day swim – 10 laps which is just over .25 mile. (18 laps is half mile)
- 1 brick : 8 mile bike ride followed by 1.5 mile run.
Being “In Training” helped me to want to stick to my food plan as well. I had a couple of days that were a little off plan (a bit higher fat content & calories than I hand planned), but my calories out were more than my calories in every day this week.
