After planning and reworking my training plan several times, I have I officially complied a 12 week training plan that will get me across the finish line. Now, most half ironman training plans are 18-20 weeks, however, due to my back still being fussy and a small encounter with a kitchen knife (that required stitches and kept me out of the pool for ten days. Needless to say I will be buying pre-sliced onions from here on out.) I have to work with the 12 weeks I have left until race day. Knowing I am already pretty strong on the bike due to all my recent cycling and the fact I have many cycling events coming up I need to stay in shape for, I will be mostly focusing on the swimming, running and putting all three events together.
My official training started this past Monday. This plan also incorporates the training for many of my fall events including 2 or 3 centuries, a few half marathons and *gulp* a possible marathon (more on those events to come).
2011 Summer/Early Fall Training Plan
Swims are in black, runs are in pink and rides are in orange. I am pretty sure not all workouts will be completed on the days they are currently scheduled as my schedule seems to change daily but at least I know what needs to be done during the week. I will be doing weekly re-caps showing the proposed work out/what was actually done and when.
I am REALLY REALLY excited (and also a little nervous) about this race. It is coming up quick - better get training!!
