IronDad’s Schedule

IronDad’s Schedule


First, the important stats

  • Weeberzon: overdue by 4 days
  • IM Muskoka: 22 weeks to go

I like forecasting.

It’s fun to prognosticate and then wait to see how close I was to reality. So in that vein, I’m going to lay out my planned weekly training schedule on the road to Muskoka. With rule number 1 in mind, I don’t have a very high degree of confidence that I’ll stick to this schedule. That’s half the journey though: learning to be flexible. So for the next few weeks, here’s what I’m thinking:

  • MO – Recovery ride
  • TU – Easy run + Hard group ride
  • WE – Endurance ride + Strength
  • TH – Hill or interval run + Hill ride / coaching TTC or MEC ride group
  • FR – Day off training
  • SA – Long ride / leading TTC group + brick
  • SU – Long run

Notice something missing? That’s right, there’s no swimming in this schedule. Chalk this up to the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do line of thinking. The key to a good IM race is the bike anyway. Lots of that for me!

This is of course is in addition to

  • Daddy duties
  • Coaching my awesome athletes
  • Coaching one or two morning strength sessions at Blast
  • Coaching two morning Run Camp classes for the good people at Crossfit TO
  • One or two PT engagements
  • Leading the TTC Saturday morning ride
  • Coaching one evening run and likely one evening bike group
  • Two weekly shifts at MEC

Looks like an exciting spring and summer ahead. So what do you think? Doable?

Remember: do as I say, not as I do.
