Okay, Linae and Sharon, you got me thinking. Can I do both???
I know myself and my immediate reaction is to say no, I can't. But the more I think about it the more I think maybe I can.
That 70.3 is such a huge thing to me that I continue to think I need at least 6 months of training in order to even finish such a thing. I can't imagine trying to accomplish something like that with only 12 weeks of training.
The weight training I plan on doing is a circuit routine. It starts off deceptively simple but gradually increases over time so by the end of 12 weeks an hour work out completely wipes me out.
But now I'm starting to think maybe.....
What if I did just blast the weight loss for 3 months then move into training? I've been planning on using running and biking for my cardio work, all I need is to squeeze some swimming in.
So here's what I'm thinking:
Monday: Running or biking
Tuesday: Weight training
Thursday: Weight training
Friday: Running or biking
Saturday: Weight training
Sunday: Biking and ocean swimming
Wow, why couldn't that work?? Wednesdays would be my "rest" day by only swimming. Sundays I could head over to Waikiki and get some good hills in and an ocean swim. Hmmm....
This is something I will definitely have to tweak till I get a program I can live with for 12 weeks.
Then I will switch things up and hit the swimming harder and be ready of Honu. This could work.
