Duathlon Training!!

I’m putting my training plan on here so I can have it in one place. May or may not record each workout as I go, but thinking it’s a good idea, maybe weekly. Thank you to everyone who had input on my training! Any advice is welcome!! Keep me honest, people! Here is the map for the Central Park duathlon!

Oh and I bought one of these babies to help me get to the next level! Woot!

Thursday – Bike 80 45 min, steady path with 5-7 intervals of 15 sec ea w/1-2 min rest in between (argh, only able to do 45 minutes due to sun setting earlier, doh!) (also did Post Athletic Stretch Routine for Cycling by Yoga Tune Up) Workout sort of done!
FridayOff/stretching/physical therapy
SaturdayRun 35 min speed work (steep hill, 5 min warm up, sprint up and down hill for 15 min., easy run for 15 min.) Did Post Athletic Stretch for Running by Yoga Tune Up. Holy mother of god that was rough. I lost count running up and down the hill. Heart rate sucks. Want to get an inhaler that doesn’t make my hr shoot up, so I know whether I’m actually getting fitter. Had to stop running at the end for about 1 min. Lots of room for improvement!! Workout done!
