Great job Lovey on the swim workouts, keep it up! And awesome job everyone else on their races.

My training has slipped over the last couple of weeks due to other priorities, but I was running twice a week. Unfortunately, today I strained my calf muscle. My calves started bothering me last week, so today I meant to go out easy and keep it short, but it happened so quickly. Very sad - but hopefully I will be able to shift back into a swim and bike routine until I can run again.


Dang man, that's what I was worried about when I checked your log. Get better and like you said the pool and bike are there for you.

Went for a run this morning but it was pouring rain. I was going to brave it but no one else was on board.
I had my swim gear in the car so decided to go for a swim.

1x50 swim
1x50 kick
1x50 pull
1x1200
Total: 1350 yards


I am again between weeks in this program. I was planning to do week 6 (day 1), so after the short warm up, I started in. When I got to 1000 yards, I felt tired but ok. After I got to 1200 yards, I was really tired and I could feel my form faltering so I called it quits. I think I am going to drop back to week 5 for the next week or 2 and see if I can get comfortable again. This is what happens when you miss workouts!

WEEK five:
1000 yards...rest for 8 breaths
4 x 100 yards...rest for 4 breaths between 100s
4 x 50 yards...rest for 4 breaths between 50s
total: 1600 yards

WEEK six (days 1 and 2):
1200 yards...rest for 6 breaths
3 x 100 yards...rest for 4 breaths between 100s
3 x 50 yards...rest for 4 breaths between 50s
(day 3)
1650 yards straight (equals 1500 meters)
total: 1650 yards!



Look at how far you have come. Now your like I swam 1200 non-stop but didn't feel quit strong enough so I'm going to redo a couple weeks. I can remember when you thought that distance was almost impossible for you. You are freaking awesome and a super hard worker. Great Job

I'm curious about the 'don't increase your run by more than 10% per week' rule. Is there a minimum mileage under which this doesn't apply?

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

How should I go about training for the marathon while also building base in the other two events? Doing this seems like it's causing me to break the 10% rule in running.

Yes, the Dual is a little heavier than Cervèlo’s high end counterparts. But…the price is within reach of the masses and it still incorporates all of the design features that make a Cervèlo special.
