Goal: Build Strength on swim, bike, and run and in weight room.<br><br>
Run<br>
o Return to doing hillwork.<br>
o Return to doing speedwork with longer intervals.<br>
o Run marathon distance or more once.<br><br>
Bike<br>
o Base build for strength.<br>
o Get long Trainer workout to 90 minutes (just once, no need to go longer).<br>
o Start high cadence work (in addition to high power w/low cadence).<br><br>
Swim<br>
o Continue Drills.<br>
o Start Speed intervals.<br>
o Hit 50 laps once.<br><br>
Brick<br>
o Continue with a short brick bike-run at least once every other week.

Heal the knees. Everything else is secondary to that. Oh - weight control would be good, though I'm not off to a good start today...

I made it through the holidays with zero weight gain. "Rest" time is now over.<br>
So it's time to get back into Tri training, building up towards GCT. And this time, no missed swim and/or weight workouts<br><br><br>
And yea, listening to Sheldon.

1. Stay more focused on workouts while on the trainer.<br><br>
2. Get back a more regular nightly yoga routine<br><br>
3. Limit 'sweet treats' to less than 200 cals / day

This is a great idea!<br><br>
If I may add my goals:<br><br>
1--weight loss<br>
2--consistency<br>
3--weight loss<br>
4--consistency<br>
5--weight loss<br><br><br><br>
I took some time off--running maybe 1-2 a week and swimming and biking 2 a week, for the last 3 months or so--NOW it is time to buckle down and get back to training!

focus on quality of shorter runs, no more just get out the door mentality<br>
Keep the gym work going strong for one more month.<br><br><br>
Hey NBJunkie, I just signed up for the Providence Marathon. Let me know if you are going my wife will bring us back to the start.

Increase output on the trainer workouts, try to string together 30 or so miles a week of running at any old pace without injury, try to turn December's strength work into more power on the bike, hit some hilly rides outside when the weather is OK. Next month we'll start some training races.<br><br>
Plus get out and XC ski and perhaps jump in a race if I can pull it off, i.e. live a little.

Get my butt back on my real bike (not the spinning bike at the gym)<br><br>
Strengthen my core. I am tired of my big middle. I feel like I have great legs, my arms are looking better and better but my big middle is growing old!!
