Week 5 Training Recap ...

This was Week 5 of the Fitzgerald HIM Training Plan.  It was a very productive week in that not a single workout was missed or modified.  Actually a few minutes were added here and there so I guess some of the workouts did get modified?  Oh, well ...

The numbers:

Swim -  4 Workouts - 4hrs 40mins - 10,100 yards
Bike  -  4 Workouts - 6hrs 31mins - 115.81 miles
Run   -  4 Workouts - 3hrs 54mins - 24.45 miles
                  Totals - 12 Workouts - 15hrs 05mins

Long Bike - 60 miles
Long Run - 10 miles

Here is the Week 6 Schedule.  I am doing a race on Sunday so Saturday is going to become my Off Day and Monday will be my Long Run Day.  This is not a big deal because my training weeks begin on Tuesday so it actually works out.  It is funny how race days just screw up long term training goals!
