Base Week 1, Done

Love this track but it’s actually buried under snow this week.

My first week of training, following what I’m calling The Mary Plan, went well! With snow and ice still on the ground, I’m getting my workouts done indoors. I managed to fix our treadmill belt this week and pair a cadence sensor with Zwift to track my runs. Week 1 of base work included 3 runs at 1.5, 1.2, and 1.5 miles respectively. (Of course Chip jumped on the treadmill after school today and ran 2 miles flat out in a quarter of the time I did, but, whatever.) Slow and steady — no injuries.

While writing out my monthly plan last week, I realized I have still have a metric century coming up in May — the Boston Brain Tumor Ride! (Those early season rides always sneak up on me!) I’m riding with Alison on Team Noggin, in memory of her mom who died of brain cancer. (Jennifer, Amy, and Kristen are joining us as well.) I have 12 weeks to prep for the ride (still plenty of time) and have added that to my training calendar too.

Run, bike... no swim

I’m not falling down that rabbit hole.
