Here I am on Friday afternoon while time is dragging at an ALL time s-l-o-w pace and I’m reading my desk calendar where I write down my entire workout activities. As I reflect on this last week, I can’t but think I need to “re-tweak” my training schedule.
I will admit that I was pushing it too hard on the way up the canyon in the first place. Yes, I was trying to be competitive with a couple of fellow cyclists; which would not have been so bad in of it self but I had gone for a walk/run of 4.5 miles early that morning. It was too much on my legs in one day.
Thus, here I am wondering about my training schedule, and I thought I would throw this out there and see if anyone might have a suggestion or a thought about what I’ve been doing. Now keep in mind that I’m training for a century bike ride and a half marathon. But here’s the general layout of my ideal week…
Sunday- Long bike ride—ideally 50+ miles (building up to 100 miles)
Monday- Early morning bike ride with club- 11 miles easy paced
Tuesday- Early morning walk/run of 3 to 4.5 miles; Canyon bike ride with bike club- 25 miles.
Wednesday- Early morning bike ride with club- 11 miles easy pace; sometimes I’ll throw in an extra 15-20 mile good paced bike ride on my own.
Thursday- Early morning walk/run of 3 to 4.5 miles; 15 or 20 mile club bike ride.
Friday- Early morning bike ride with club- 11 miles easy paced (Sometimes instead of biking I’ll go for a 1 mile swim.)
Saturday- Long walk/run of 6.5+ miles (building up to 13.1 miles)
And that’s my training schedule in a nut shell. Any feed back would be appreciated! Thanks!
