Although the plan calls for certain workouts on certain specific days, I will always be modifying these based on what days I have time to do a specific workout or get to the pool. The goal on most weeks will be to do at least the workouts indicated. All workouts are time based, not distance. All workouts in the base training are in low intensity (arobic heart range)
Aside from trying a workout plan for the first time, it is the first time that I constantly used a heart rate monitor and would slow down if my heart rate spiked. It is also the first time I went “spinning” on my trainer (high RPM’s, low resistance).
With the cold weather, all activities were indoor (pool, bike trainer, treadmill (shorter runs) and indoor track (longer runs)).

Wednesday-0:30 bike/0:15 run (with transition)
Thursday-1:00 swim, 0:30 bike
