It’s official: The Mullet Man triathlon is 12 weeks away. It is time to get serious and start training hard. I sat down this weekend and set up a training schedule for the next 12-weeks. It is a modified version of the one in (don’t make fun) The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Triathlon Training. I bought this book last year to help with my first triathlon .
I actually did pretty good in the last year’s Mullet Man , placing 2nd in the fat tire division. I was able to take a lot away from that race as well. Example: start on the outside of the swim pack, move through my transition points quicker, do not ride a 50 lb too small mountain bike, just to name a few!
So drum roll if please…. Here is the plan of attack! Let’s hope I can stick to this plan better than my half marathon training. I definitely can not cry boredom this time around!
Bike – Single Leg Drills - 10.12 miles in 43:04, 14 mph pace (Not blazing any trails but this was my first time on a bike in months)
Run – Transitions Run – 1.12 miles in 10:20, 9:12 pace (First transition run in a long time. It took half a mile for my legs to begin to work, after that I was able to open up my stride.)
Weights – This is a killer chest workout. I think next time I will do different ab exercises. I could barely hold myself up during the burpees and mountain climbers!
Wow after that workout I laid on the floor in the gym for a few minutes! Now time for a protein shake and some BCAA’s!
