Training Plan For Cleveland Steelman
Remember the kid at school who spent ages putting together the perfect exam revision timetable? The one that was colour coded, with each subject highlighted, and every hour of spare time between now and the exams planned out in meticulous detail?
That was me.
Of course, the knack is to schedule the time to plan out the timetable far enough before the exams so that you actually have enough time for some revision before the exams start. Hopefully that’s what I’ve managed to do this time with my plan for the Cleveland Steelman. The realisation that it was only eleven weeks away quite freaked me out for the back half of last week, and so the only possible course of action was to put a plan together (click to enlarge):
. . . the cycling mileage for training rides climbs throughout the 11 weeks (and I won’t be counting commuting rides toward any of these) . . .
. . . there are bricks every two weeks . . .
. . . there are straight swim endurance sessions outside of the club training with the NE31 Tri Club . . .
. . . There’s even a half-way serious swim-bike workout planned for while I’m on holiday in France . . .
. . . and there’s really no let-up during this holiday. As such . . .
I’ve never put together a plan as detailed as this before. If you have, please let me know what you think - if I’m about to make a huge mistake please make sure you tell me! I mean a mistake with the training of course - not the signing up for the race in the first place. I’d already figured that one out for myself.
