Week 2 of 13 Training for LA Olympic


Here's a brief on the second week of training. I've been super busy with work so this weeks update is a little thin. I've stepped it up a notch in some areas and had a couple lapses due to work. That's just the nature of the beast.

Mon. - GYM continue working out. I skipped the chest work outs increased the weight and lowered the number of reps to 15-20.
Tues. - I rode about 35 miles.
Wed. - Swim for 30mins no time or distance constraints today. I was supposed to do about 2000 yrds. Instead I helped Peg with her bike.
Thurs. - Ride 20 - 30 miles.
Fri. - Morning Gym. Fewer reps and more weight than last week. Sticking with the theme for the week, I'm just going through the movements to get back into the swing of things. 1. Squats 2. Lat Pull down 3. Leg Press 4. Chest Press 5. Seated Row 6. Hamstring Curl 7. Sit-ups. Evening. try to squeeze in 2000-3000 yrds.
Sat. - Run 4-6 miles.
Sun. - BREAK. With such a light week I really don't need a break but it's a good habit to have. Later on these days will be indispensable.

I'm consistently going to ride on Tues. and Thurs. now because I joined my wife's ms150 training rides. There are plenty of guys that keep me pushing on the rides. If you can find a local group the has regular rides it's a great option for training. You can go longer and farther with a group. However you'll still want to get in your alone time on the aerobars. Don't ride aero in a group, it's dangerous. The picture is of the small Tues. ride group that I did: Phil, Peg, Zetulio, and Warren.

Workouts help you achieve more results if you're doing it regularly.
