Jan 28, 2013 update + spring training plans (maybe)

This time of year I tend to concentrate on building muscle for the coming season because during the season, I only hit the weights once a week. Still swimming a lot and continue to go to Masters Swimming once a week. I really should run and bike more, I’ve been slacking on those areas. The treadmill and bike trainer are just harder to get myself to use vs going outside. Two Saturdays ago the power was out so I had to do a bike trainer workout without the typical music video playlist! It was kinda torture. I also didn’t use my Wahoo Fitness app to save my phone battery so I don’t know how far or fast I went.

I’ve been thinking of dedicating a week to each sport (swim, bike, run) in April, or so, as spewing conditioning. This isn’t something I read in a magazine or anything, just something I thought of. I’m not totally sure how to go about it properly or if its even a good idea. I figure during each week, I can really concentrate on one sport at a time with the exception of one strength workout each week for maintenance. I plan to also do the weeks in order of a race. I need to put together a training plan for the three weeks. Any thoughts or suggestions?
