Monday was supposed to be a bike ride day but I didn't do anything. Tuesday's swim/run training fell by the wayside as well.
Susan bought the new cookbook Now Eat This! by Rocco DiSpirito. Since Rocco is a chef and a triathlete I thought I'd include a few few picture of his recipes in my blog. Nutrition is an important part of endurance and recovery. Good nutrition should also be part of my training. Susan has been trying the new recipes and I've been helping her "evaluate" the results. On Monday we had Chicken something followed by Salmon something on Tuesday. So far the dinners have been pretty good.

On Thursday I swam 1.7 miles in the lake. It took me 1 hour and 13 minutes in my big blue bloomers. They create a lot of drag but I'm not racing so who cares.

On Saturday Susan and I had planned to ride together. I'd ride 20 miles with her and then go off on my own and do another 20 miles or so. Well, we got up late, read the paper, drank some coffee and before we knew it we had to go to Atlanta to run some errands. Instead of riding I decided to swim. I got in about .95 miles.
My totals for the week are I swam 2.65 miles, rode 143.93 miles and ran 11 miles. This took me about 11 hours and 15 minutes to complete. That's 1 hour and 15 minutes shy of the 12 hours and 30 minutes my training plan called for, but a good effort never the less.
Next week it's almost 14 hours of training for me.
Thanks for reading.
