Today is the fourth week in my HIM training plan. This plan is set up on a 3 weeks build, 1 week recover schedule. So this is rest week! Plus, it’s the first rest week, so pretty much the easiest week I’ll have until after the race, I think. Might as well enjoy it!
Goals for the week:
1) Get somewhat regulated with incorporating my 2 strength sessions per week. This has somewhat fallen out of the plan since Columbia Tri. But strength work – especially core and hip work in my case – is going to be crucial to my ability to go long for the HIM in September.
2) Foam roll/stick 2-3 nights while sitting at home letting my brain rot in front of the teevee.
Without further ado, this week’s plan:
Monday – AM: Upper body and core (at home), PM: 1000 m swim
Tuesday – 45 min easy bike
Wednesday – 30 min easy run, Cali
Thursday – 1100 m swim
Friday – rest
Saturday – 1 hour easy bike w/ sprints
Sunday – 40 min easy run
