Please help me finish my training schedule. The vast majority of the workouts are first thing in the morning. After work (pm) workouts are very tough as we have a 4 year old who needs my time. I also do everything I can to support my wife’s running. All her own idea – I just do whatever needs to happen to support it.
Goals are Xterra – so I have to get all 3 (4 or 5 depending on viewpoint) specialties in. Swim, mountain bike, and trail run (plus strength training and rest). Not what plans but how to get everything in. My focus for the next 10 weeks is the run – hence that 3x a week. When I was bike (FTP boost) focused, a similar schedule worked with 3 rides and 1-2 runs per week. My Master’s swims are great for recovery of the legs and the rest of the body.
I would really like to lift 2-3x a week – get the strength up now so I can maintain it later. Most efficient to do that in the am as fewer people in the gym. I can get in/out in under an hour (including warm-up/cool-down).
Monday – AM – lift
– PM – Run?
Tuesday – AM – Bike
Wednesday – AM – Master’s Swim
Thursday – AM RUN
Friday – Master’s Swim
Saturday – Long Run
Sunday – Long Bike Ride + Run (10 min)
My wife runs Tuesday/Thursday/and one weekend day. Which limits my options.
What suggestions do you have? I really can’t do things at work – especially not until it warms up again.
