I'm following THIS plan from TriNewbies.com (where I found my first training plan). My new plan is for intermediate triathletes. The mileages are higher than the beginner plan and it requires more time. The biggest challenge is that many of the workouts involve and AM workout and a PM workout. Take today, for example. I was supposed to get 1000 yards in a the pool in the morning and then 30 minutes on the bike in the evening. I needed to be in at school by 9 AM so the morning workout wasn't going to happen. So I got my booty over to the gym when I got at of class, hit the bike, and then hit the pool.
Now I must confess. I haven't swum laps since my last triathlon back in June. Wow. That's embarrassing. It went better than I thought, but it was tough. But it felt great to be back to something familiar. And a women complemented my on how pretty I swim when I got out. I was flattered because she's a swimmer too. So, Day 1 down. Only 12 more weeks until the first race. :-)
