Tri Training Week 1 Wrap-up

Sorry this post is coming a little late today.  I wanted to do a summary of my first official week of triathlon training.  Some of the workouts look easy, but remember, it is only week 1 of 12.  The goal was to get used to working out every day, and I think it was a success.

Strength training day - 3 sets of 20 reps of the following:
1. Leg presses
2. Seated Row
3. Leg/Knee Extensions
4. Seated Lat Pulldown
5. Crunches
6. Superman

Run 15 mins (~1.5 miles)
Swim 2x100M, 8x50M freestyle

35 minute run - Social Run for National Running Day

Spinning podcast (1 hour)

Swim 2x100M, 8x50M freestyle, 3x50 breaststroke

Hill run x3 (3.5 miles total)

MY BIRTHDAY - ok, I skipped a workout day...guilty!  But no regrets!

Today I repeated Mondays workout plus I added in 100 body-weight squats.  Hopefully I will be able to keep up this schedule especially as the workouts get a little more intense.  Wish me luck!


  1. That's so awesome that you are training for a tri! I'm currently training for a marathon and would love to do a tri someday. The swimming part intimidates me though! Good luck! :)

    1. Thanks! Don't be intimidated by the swim. Start small. Practice makes perfect. :) Good luck on your marathon! I haven't done one yet but hope to train for one soon.
