Summer Training!

Today was my first official day of summer break!  Being a teacher, I love June, July and August just for a break, but I also love it for the great training I can get in!  With the Triple Bypass and Age Group Nationals coming this summer, I better be working hard!

Today's work out called for a 40 mile ride to the ranch and back on Antelope Island.  This is my favorite place to ride and it was gorgeous this morning!  I saw hundreds of buffalo, dozens of deer and antelope, and even an eagle!  Temperature wise it was  in the high 50's and low 60s.  Perfect!  I had a great ride minus the nasty headwind on the way back.

One thing I want to do on this blog is use it for accountability in my training.  Whether or not you care what my training looks like, doesn't really matter to me, but I plan on posting here every Monday what my training is for the week, and then the next Monday will be my moment of truth when I report back if I actually did it or not.  So here is the line up for the week:

Monday (today) - Bike - 40 miles with climbing CHECK!
Tuesday - Swim 1250 meters, run 3 track speed work
Wednesday - bike 30, probably down to Kaysville and climb up to HW 89, then OWS that night
Thursday - Swim 1500, run 5
Friday - Bike 60 with climbing, probably head up to Trappers Loop
Saturday - long run - 8 miles

There are a few things up in the air that may necessitate some changes.  I have been invited on a group ride on Saturday, and if I go, I will move my long run to some other day this week.

I had a fun weekend planning out the training as well as our trip back east to Nationals.  I have all the hotels booked, and the kids have been planning what they want to see and do along the way.

In the meantime, Happy Training and Racing all!
