Run, Swim, Ride or Day Off?

Posted: September 13, 2010 in It's All Important Stuff

This is the classic real-life, balanced with triathlon, dilemma… Who has good advice?

Friday, Saturday and Sunday were hard days with long swim, long run and a decent ride.  Typically Monday is my day off as a full recovery day.  And, since I am old now, I really need this.

However, I am traveling Tuesday through Thursday and will miss a bike, run and a swim.  Traveling isn’t exactly the best recovery, and there is little chance to train while gone.

My legs are feeling about as heavy as the guy in the photo.  So, here is my plan.  I am going to do an easy swim today and entertain an easy ride tonight after work and then do a short run after a hard ride on Thursday night.

This plan is based upon the principal that my legs really need the recovery and my aerobic system can recover a bit during the week.

What the heck would you do?
