THE PLAN ~ What plan?

    The triathlon web site had a training plan for triathlon-preparation. There were some good tips, but they only suggested working out three days a week at first! That didn't seem like enough to me, so I decided to scrap their plan.

    The thing is, though, that I don't really have a specific training plan. If I had to articulate my approach, it would sound like this:

    "Run, bike, and swim as much as possible. Try to workout every day, but don't ever skip two days. Try not to do the same sport two days in a row."

    Since I have very specific goals, I will probably swim, bike, and run exactly those distances in my workouts. Eventually, when they get easier, I'll try stringing two of them in a row, then three, if I can.
