WEEK 1 IRON HALF TRAINING May 13-19 (Completed)

Monday, May 20, 2013

I thought it would be easier for me to keep track of workouts if I posted once a week at the end of each training week. I am competing in my 2nd Half Ironman competition at the end of August. The race consists of: 2KM open water swim followed directly by a 90KM bike ride followed directly by a Half Marathon (21.1 KM).

First Week of Training (5 to 6 week Base Stage):

Monday - Strength Training - Core and Weights 1 Hour, followed by 30 min of training swim using legs only, arms only with swim paddles

Tuesday - Shovelled 2 cubic yds of dirt and mulch for my Mom (3hrs heavy lifting)

Wednesday - 40 min bike ride followed directly by 20 minute run

Thursday : 45 minute bike ride

Friday: Strength Training - Core and Weights 1 Hour, followed by 30 min of training swim using legs only, arms only with swim paddles

Saturday: 60 Minute Bike Ride directly followed by 1 KM run

Sunday: 5KM run

So that was my first week of a 6 week base training. The Base Training is the most important phase and you establish a solid foundation to move to the Build Phase.

Later
