train: week 1

So my first week of triathlon training ended Sunday.  This is what week 1 held for me (the numbers stand for minutes):

M : 12 swim / 24 bike

W : 20 swim

Th : 12 run

F : 40 bike

Sun : 20 run

Overall, it was a good week.  I would say of all three sports (swimming, biking running), swimming is by far my favorite.

For my Thursday run, I took my very first run around my new neighborhood.  It’s a quiet area and I enjoyed being able to say hello to a few new neighbors.  On Friday I did something completely un-me.  I got up for a 6 am spin class.  Did you hear me?  6 AM!!!  There is no other way that I will sit on a bike for 40 minutes; it just hurts my butt way too much!  I was tired the rest of the day but it was worth it.  I enjoyed the spin class however I am rethinking the 6 am time!  There are other classes…

Finally, my Sunday run.  Well, to be honest, that one didn’t happen.  Sunday was just a busy day for me and I (secretly) just ignored the run.  I will have to do better this week in making sure I *completely* stick to the training.  Honestly, I felt the lack of the run come my Monday swim.  Normally I can jump in and start my laps right away, however it took a few laps for me to really get into a regular breathing pattern.  I do not like that at all.  Lesson learned.

Now on to week 2.  August 28th seems so far off.  Yet, I know it will be here in a blink of an eye.

I leave you with a bit of joy and daily inspiration:
