Mr. Cyclist wants to see what I am capable of if I actually trained for something. I never been big into races or competitions. Mainly because I don’t feel that I am that good at a specific sport.
I used to be good at skiing… but, can’t really do that here in the South. I was decent at tennis, could run OK, and danced for a while. But, aside from that I have always just been “fit” and not really athletic at anything in particular.
So, I decided I could follow Mr. Cyclist’s 2 week plan for me, and see if I really do see any improvements. Maybe it will motivate me more to see what I am capable of. Who knows.
If anything, maybe I will be able to keep up more with the more serious cyclists. Hahaha.
Day 1: Rode my bike with Mr. Cyclist and friend for 1 hr 45 min–almost 2 hrs. Always pretty hard trying to keep up with him.
Day 2: Run 50% more than I normally would at average pace. So, instead of a 3 mile loop, I did about 5 miles. Was very tired from yesterday.
Day 3 (today): Will do a strength class for 1 hr at my gym. And maybe some extra strength exercises of my own (extra abs and legs).
Not sure what else. I basically ask Mr. Cyclist what to do everyday, and go do it. The nice thing about it is that I can tell him at the end of the day if I completed it or how it went.

When putting a training plan together its important to include stretches beforehand as injuries can occur. Here is an infographic for advice on managing sport injuries.
