Week 1 Training (Feb 24-Mar 2) - aka: Getting Up at What Time?

And away we go!

Training scheduled for this week (Monday, Feb 24-Sunday, Mar 2):

I'll update with what the actual training hours (and miles, because honestly, the plan may talk about training in hours, but in my runner's mind it's still all about miles) at the end of this week. I'll also try to post a few emotional and personal stats each week:

Total hours scheduled: 6:00

Total hours logged: 6:00

Total running miles this week/total: 10.67/10.67

Total biking miles this week/total: 27.95/ 27.95

Total swimming yards this week/total: 4900/4900

Weight: X (okay, I'm a woman in my 40s. I'm not secure enough to put my current weight on a public blog. We'll just keep it X +/- whatever amount, each week)

Level of IM enthusiasm: 8/10 The thought of doing this another seven months is pretty overwhelming, but I was ready to get started on an official training schedule!

Nutrition elements: nothing fascinating, no workout was long enough to need nutrition. I have been concentrating over the last few weeks on eliminating coffee as the very first thing I need in the morning in order to survive. Have been pretty successful in that regard.

General notes: I am a night person. Blame it on being a writer or whatever, but my "natural" awake hours are from 10am - 2am. So adjusting to waking up at 6am-ish to get my workouts in before hubby goes to work has been TOUGH. Hopefully that will get easier.  Next week I'm going to talk about using the HR monitor, because that is flippin' killing me also.
