This is how the first ten weeks of 2006 stacked up for me, on a week-by-week basis. Not very high volume training (yet), but solid consistency for me, and gradually increasing totals. Plus a marathon, two half marathons, and a swim clinic under my belt. That's money in the Bank of Ironman, I'm hoping!
Checking my Excel chart every week and maintaining weekly minimums in each discipline has made a world of difference in the consistency of my training this year. That's a big change for me! Hurrah!
