|Yesterday's post run walkies included flip flops and green grass!|
I haven't been in a pool in months, though, and I'm worried it will be a shock to my system. It's a bit like riding a bike - you never lose the ability, but you do lose your finesse. In looking at the Ironman training plan, my first official training swim is 3,000 yards, so I better get back to building up that distance.
I've done some Insanity home workouts on and off as training supplements, a practice I'd like to keep up. I'm using the FIRST Marathon Training Plan again, which calls for three days per week of running and three days of cross training. This suits my schedule the best, and allows for plenty of time to get back on track with the other disciplines triathlon requires. I've been spending some of these days on the bike and some working on my plyometric cardio with Insanity.
I'd like to get back to double workouts by the beginning of the new year, and return to swimming in January. I'm sure it's like anything else - if it's a priority, you'll make time for it. I did this once, so it's time to do it again.
