Training plan

This weekend I went to my grandpa's 80th birthday and in so doing, saw many (many) cousins and aunts and uncles that I haven't seen for 8+ years. And the question they all asked me, "HOW ARE YOU SO THIN??!!" "What do you eat??" "How much do you workout??" My aunt couldn't believe that for breakfast one morning I had 2 eggs, 2 pieces of toast, and orange juice. (which is pretty normal for me) she thought that was SO MUCH food. the next morning I had a yogurt parfait, blueberry muffin, 2 more eggs and bacon. So, here is my training plan for this week:

Monday: run 4 miles with no stopping. There are 4 significant hills. for reals. BIG hills. Oh, I forgot about the one at the end, 5 hills.

Tuesday: swim - warm up (300 free, 200 back, 200 breast, 200 kick), 1250 nonstop. goal: 20 minutes or so, cool down.  bike 10 miles intervals. sprint .25 mile, spin .75 mile for 8 miles. 1 mile warm up and cool down.

Wednesday: run 4 miles, lower body blast class (I'm teaching)

Thursday: swim - warm up(300 free, 300 breast, 200 kick), 12x50's all out!! rest 1 min. cool down. bike 15 miles for time.

Friday: run 1 mile slow warm up and then interval work. 5x200's with 200 walking slow. :45 or faster per 200 cool down with slow jog.  Full body strength and core work.

Saturday - swim - warm up(300 free, 200 back, 300 breast, 100 fly, 100 kick) 100+3x50 (4 times), cool down, 20 mile bike

Sunday - REST.

how's that?? No more guesswork about what I do everyday.

What are YOU doing every day??
