My plan for the week:

Swim: 7pm, pool, Masters

Wednesday --
Bike: 5:30am, around the lake, 0:45 Z2
Run (brick): right after the bike, 0:30 Z2

Thursday --
Bike: 5:20am, either on the trainer or ???, 1:00 Z2 (at 15min, insert 3 x 5min Z4 @ 3min spin)
Swim: 7pm, pool, Masters

Friday --
Run: 5:30am, from the gym, 1:00 Z2 (at 0:45, insert 7.5min Z4)
Swim: lunch???, pool, 3000m or whatever the heck I can fit in

Sunday --

Run: 8am, wherever, 1:15 Z1-Z2

TOTAL = 13:00

Week 13 Wrap-Up

It's my rest day and I refuse to get up off the couch to take an update photo or measurements, so that will have to wait until tomorrow. I had a great training week and pretty much nailed everything that I set out to do, even if it meant sprint intervals in mid-90° afternoon temps, pushing through near-bonk on another hilly ride, and swimming until I couldn't pull myself out of the pool anymore. All of this Z4 work is kicking my butt. In a good way I hope.

Swim = 8000 meters
Bike = 91.48 miles
Run = 14.91 miles
Plus some other crap like transitions.
TOTAL = 12.25 hours
