Finally On Track?

I did a real bike/run (brick) workout today, not an indoor exercise bike/treadmill one. There were some threatening clouds all around, but no rain or thunder. I did 17 miles on the bike, followed by a 3 mile run. The humidity was around 90% so the run was tough. My legs were a little tight from yesterday's 37 mile ride because I haven't stretched or done any yoga in several days. I made sure to stretch today after my run.

I am trying to catch back up on my half-ironman training plan. Remember the plan that I never really even started? Now I have to start training for the fall marathon I'm doing as well.

Two training plans combined! This may seem tough, but it's really not when you're not totally doing what either plan says to do anyway.

Which is also totally dumb!

When I get off track I'm going to remind myself how painful it is to run a marathon without training properly for it. Once is more than enough!

I'm not even doing a comparison of what I did last week compared to what the training plan said to do. It's basically the same as the week before except I swam a couple of times and did a short sprint race. This week I'm actually getting some longer rides and swims in, which is what I've needed to do for a while.

Also, Phantom started his own blog Here. Hop on over and show him some love. Most of the updates on how he's doing with the chemo and the cancer will be over there instead of on this blog.
