Pre-race routine:

After listening to the rain and the howling winds all through the night, I wondered what I had gotten myself into. Stacey called at 4:45 a.m. to ask if I had been outside yet. I opened the door and it was freezing outside! The good news was the rain had stopped. It was misty a little but that was all.
Event warmup:

Bob R suggested we wear our extra sneakers down to the swim start. Excellent idea! The ground was so cold.

Transition 1
  • 04m 1s

After taking off my wetsuit, I was freezing. It was so cold and windy. It was a little hard to get dressed.

I put on a short-sleeved shirt, arm warmers, vest, knee warmers (which I really appreciated) and gloves (with the liners). Then my helmet and sunglasses. Oh, and socks and shoes. No wonder it took me so long.
What would you do differently?:

In hindsight, I think I should've just put a long-sleeved shirt on instead of arm warmers, and a vest. Although I did wear the short-sleeved shirt for the run. So that part was a good move.

  • 12 miles
  • 16.86 mile/hr

I was so glad that I was dressed warm because it was so windy! Would you believe that I actually saw a guy biking with his wetsuit on?
Transition 2
  • 01m 40s

I put my running shoe on and then realized that I had to take the knee warmer off. I definitely didn't want to run with those on.
  • 23m 20s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 47s  min/mile

I felt good.

At mile ten I heard a noise like I had gotten paper in my spokes or something. I looked but saw nothing but a few seconds later my rear tire blows out.

Are these races too close together to give me any sort of recovery? Will I be spent and unhappy racing back to back weekends and then again two weeks after that?

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

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

Since your “A” race is your marathon, which you stated in your question, this should be your main focus. I encourage you to taper a bit for the sprint distance triathlon.

This is NOT a diet book, but a weightloss book that has helped me change how I see food and the choices I make when I eat.

Since I didn't have much time and since it's a super sprint, am I OK just go to at the training relatively hard through Thursday or even Friday?
