Overview of Training Week and What Lies Ahead

Sunday night I went ahead after a good week of training and officially registered for the Bluff Creek Triathlon on May 20th, 2012. I registered for the Olympic Distance. This will provide me some good triathlon experience prior to my big 70.3 Ironman race in Racine, WI in July. Basically, this gives me two triathlon race practices with Bluff Creek and the QC Tri. I hope that will be enough, but as of right now I don't know how much more time I will have to race. My schedule looks quite busy with my training and helping with the Live Uncommon Revolution(see links in sidebar) as a Road Coach.

Due to my registration of this triathlon I have to modify my training plans. I would like to practice on tapering for the Bluff Creek Tri so I have adjust my training schedule to allow me to do so. What this means is that I have to move my recovery week back so instead of recovery this week it will just have to hold off until Spring Break which looking ahead might be wise as I will be on the sandy beaches of Jamaica and I know my training will not be perfect.

This past week I had an amazing week of training. I accomplished my biggest volume in training so far with 131.04 miles

101.04 miles on the bike
26.79 miles on the road
3.21 miles in the pool

This week also brought my total triathlon training to over 1000 miles since starting 11/28/11

714.43 miles on the bike
268.27 miles on the road
43.28 miles in the pool

1026.01 miles total (one of the totals above is off .03)

Last, but not least don't forget to head over to the Live Uncommon Revolution page and see what they have going on. There are some amazing things going on. I have signed on to help raise $700 to bring money to students for scholarships, to provide money to many races across the QC that are organized for charities, and to just help give back to help others who need it. If you would like to make a donation to the REVOLUTION and to help me achieve my goal I would greatly appreciate it. Head over to my page to read more about why I am involved.

I am off to prep for my training plans for the week. I have some big swim workouts to put together and contact the CRAZIES and others about the plans for the week. Here is to another great week of GETTING IT DONE!
