Thanks for getting us started Dr TC. Hope you got a chance to run outside; I did and it was fabulous!


Goals were something like
swim x 4 - Yes
bike x 3 - Yes
run x 3 - Yes
xc ski x 1 - nope
strength x 2 - nope, only did one really quick pre-treadmill session. I also got in my rest day but unintentionally on the wrong day after my "power nap" became rather more extended.


Goals this week: 4 x swim (1 done), 3 x bike (1 done), 4 x run, strength x 2. Have a rest day on Sunday. Get my next assignment started.

Happy Monday Ladies! Hope everyone had a good week, and stayed warm through this brutal cold snap.

Last week's goal was to make it through the halfway point of my build block. I had an amazing week, almost breakthrough-worthy. I ran track with the team on Thursday (and got locked in a bathroom by accident, way to go me...), had a great long ride with some long Z3 intervals, ran outside in the bitter cold after swim on Friday, and upped the weight on my strength sessions. The longer mileage is flying by and I just feel stronger and lighter. Here's hope that feeling sticks around.

This week's goal- make it through the end of this block:

M- rest day (nailin' it!)
Tu- 2600yd swim, 7mi run, strength- this will be in FL, and I am so freaking stoked to run along the Gulf. We may get stuck here for another day due to the winter storm
W- 75min Zwift session
Th- track session, 50min Zwift and strength
F- 4mi run, Team Kickoff party with a SwimBox analysis. I'm TERRIFIED, lol.
Sa- 16mi run with the team
Su- 60mi ride, 45min recovery swim

Team Zoot
Tailwind Trailblazer

Thanks for getting us started Dr. Tigerchik!

Last week's goal was 4 swims, 4 bikes, and 4 runs and I did it. This week it's 4 swims, 5 bikes, and 4 runs and actually riding my triathlon bike.

Has anyone adjusted their cranks and would you be open to talking about it?

Happy training y'all!

I ran outside Monday and Sunday.

M: 9.1 mi run
T: 6.5 mi run + 575 yd swim
W: 10 mi run + 625 yd swim
T: 3.5 mi run + 1275 yd swim
F: 7.2 mi run + 1825 yd swim
S: 3.5 mi run + 625 yd swim
S: 14 mi run

so no cycling, which is ok.

totals 4975 yd swim, 53.8 mi run

goals for this week: none... super stressed at work and just need to let myself do what I want to and feel up to doing. The stress will end the evening of Feb. 5.

Hey Dr TC and womens,

sounds like everyone is nailing their training plans.

TC I'm curious. I remember reading that you're aiming for a spring marathon. Are you following a training plan? Your training and mileage looks similar to the early weeks of the Pfitzinger 70 miles per week plan. Anyway, just being nosey :-)

I didn't meet any of my goals for last week, but in retrospect I still managed to run x6, swim x1 and climb x2, which is more than I felt I did!! My dd was ill, so I couldn't do as much as I wanted.

Goals for this week: swim x2, bike x2 (1 done), run x7 (3 done)

I'm adapting a plan from that book, yes. The 55 mpw plan has running on 4 days; I like to be able to run more days because it combats my anxiety - but 70 mpw is too much.

This is how I feel about the plans too! I'm sort of tempted to give the 70mpw plan a try later in the year, but until decision time I'm working on increasing my mileage to 50mpw for a few months - so I'm fit enough to even attempt the 24 wk plan!!

Good luck with your training TC. I'm pleased you have your sport to help with your anxiety and well done getting outside this week <3

A good week last week – lots of variety and the highest volume in a while. Too many things going on to get to the pool but once (and closed the other day I could have made it). I'm really liking Pilates a lot. I am not liking riding the bike indoors.

Swim: 1,800 (53 min)
Bike: 7.0 mi (28:33) 14.8 mph avg. [Zwift]
Trainer: 25 min (non-Zwift)
Walk/jog: 2.6 mi (50:18)
Weights/Pilates/yoga: 6:17
Time: 8:53

This week I'm in San Francisco for work, so walking mostly, but at least outdoors!

It is 2019 and Julie has some thoughts about Mary Poppins grooming children, an idea for a new small business, and an update on Merle Allin’s ongoing relationship with DryBar.
Oh yeah, and John Kasich attacked her through air travel arrangements and it was worse than Fyre Festival. Don’t worry, vaccines still work.
