Today was day one, week one of my official 70.3 training plan. Here we go! I got a little headstart yesterday by heading out with a couple of friends to the Silver Comet Trail for a bike ride. The Silver Comet Trail is a 61 mile trail that runs from the west side of Atlanta over to Alabama. Cyclists and runners love it because it is shaded and FLAT. The perfect location to avoid the sun during your workout! We got in 35 miles in perfect weather on Sunday morning before heading home.
Day one of my plan called for a 1000 yard swim in the AM followed by a 20 mile bike ride in the PM. I am still making adjustments to the plan in order to make it fit my schedule a bit better and work in some free time where possible. Today, I opted for the 5:30 AM spin class followed by a 1000 yard swim. I managed all that and still got to work 15 minutes early. Hooray! I may make that my Monday workout from now through Augusta in order to have Monday evenings free. It is all very much a work in progress.
Now for the big winner.... Congratulations to Stacie of Impossible is Nothing! Head over and check out her blog. She is working on busting out some new PRs this year! :)
