Triathlon Training Log – Week 5 (Jan. 30)

Greetings from sunny Sanibel!

Morning beach walks with Zelda

I escaped the New York City and will be here on the beach in Florida for a few days. Bring on the sun!

General training notes: basically, this week was a complete wash workout-wise because I’ve been sick. I was feeling under the weather last week and thought the end was in sight—but last Sunday’s run proved otherwise. I’ve been taking it easy and trying to fend off this thing all week.

Monday – off

No watts, and no power test. In an effort to kick my cold, I slept in and took a rest day.

Tuesday – off

More resting and sleeping

Wednesday – a.m. run

Easy four miles to test out the lunges

Thursday – a.m. CompuTrainer class at Tailwind Endurance

It’s never good when you walk into the studio, and your coach asks, “why are you here?” I was still feeling under the weather so I kept this 75-minute ride super easy in my endurance zone.

Friday – off

Slept in and flew south to Sanibel

Saturday – off

I planned to swim, but I was still coughing too much.

Sunday – p.m. swim

Finally, the sickness seems to be gone so I was able to sneak in a birthday swim at the outdoor rec center pool. I missed my Bearcat buds, but it was warm and sunny, a.k.a. perfect conditions for a 3,300m workout.

Did you watch the Super Bowl last night?
