Ironman 70.3 Augusta Training Recap: Week 3

Posted Jun 18 2012 2:44pm
Yet another crazy busy week! This Thursday-Sunday included 2 black tie events, a convention in Orlando for work, a sprint triathlon and a Birthday dinner with the family. By Sunday night, I was beat. Like, can’t get off the couch kind of beat. Going into the office has become the time when I actually feel like I slow down into some type of normalcy.

I do think my body is really liking the shorter twice-a-day workouts included in this plan. It’s nice to mix it up with something other than running and I’ve noticed an improvement in all three sports. I even managed a 5k PR at this weekend’s Tampa Bay Women’s Triathlon .

My “Holy-cow I just ran a 25-minute 5k face”.

Despite a jam-packed social schedule, the training week actually went really well. I got all 9 of my planned workouts in. I did however cut Sunday’s ride short. My legs were heavy from Saturday’s triathlon and I knew it was the best decision to take it easy.

Monday:

Tuesday:

  • AM- 1-hour spin class
  • PM- 800 meter swim at YMCA

Wednesday:

  • AM- 1-hour spin class
  • PM- 1/2 mile open water swim with Mad Dogs

Thursday:

  • AM- 4.5 mile run
  • PM- REST

Friday:

  • REST DAY!

Saturday:

Sunday:

  • AM- 20 mile bike ride on the Suncoast Parkway
  • PM- REST

I can’t believe I’m almost through the first month! This race is going to sneak up on me before I know it.
