I was excited to hear this weekend that one of my favorite pro triathletes is starting to offer coaching to all level of triathletes. Beth is a pretty kick ass athlete and still works as a school psychology, major props to her.
Check out her site for Reve Endurance if I didn’t already have a coach that I loved working with I would totally sign up in a heart beat!
After being kicked in the head this weekend by a virus I am taking full advantage of todays rest day. I am hopeful that I will be recovered enough to get all the rest of my training on the schedule in for the rest of the week. This week looks a lot like last week. I think this will be the recipe for my base building phase that will make up the bulk of my training. Coach defines Base Building as:
The BASE BUILDING PHASE is used to build the aerobic capacity. Although
longer duration workouts at slower pace and intensity are predominant, there
will be some training that will test your anaerobic base. Specific emphasis will
be placed upon each discipline (swim, bike, or run). Depending upon when
you begin your training schedule and your level of fitness, the Base Building
Phase generally makes up the bulk of your training schedule
So this is ‘hopefully’ what my week will look like (pending not getting any sicker)
Monday: Yoga + hip and core exercises
Tuesday: Distance focus swim 3200 yd
6 mile fartlek run
Wednesday: 90 min spin class
Thursday: 60’ progression Run
Swim: 2700 yds
Friday: 90 min spin class
Sunday: 15 mile run
Weekly Total: ~17 hrs

We are getting closer with the training plans, our bikes are closer, the long run is NO where near yours yet, I just find it fascinating, everyones different IM training plans
Hey BDD, it is interesting how different peoples plans can be! I know I don’t need to be running 15 now but I really like to run long and have an early season marathon. I would like to be running further now but have to hold back because I will end up injured if I don’t!
Big Daddy Diesel says
Ahhh, a marathon!!
Right now, my plan calls for each week
Swim 3 x 45 mins
Bike 2 x 60 mins, 1 x 2 hours
Run 2 x 60 mins, 1 x 90 mins
Strength and Core x 3
I am in “Prep” still, “Base” starts in 3 weeks
