RocketMan Triathlon Training (#1)

Monday, March 18, 2013

I am attempting to get myself organized with a plan for two upcoming Spring / Summer Triathlons. First, the Rocket Man on 5/2/13. Second, the Pineapple Man on 6/2/13. Both triathlons are a sprint distance, but the Rocket Man has an unusually long bike ride of 33 miles.

My basic weekly plan involves:
1 long bike ride, 1 spin class, 1 long run, 1 easy run, 1 speed run, 1 long swim, 1 speed swim, 2 strength training sessions and 2 yoga sessions.

I sketched out my training schedule for two weeks and I figure I can re-work and post this schedule every two weeks.
