I just finished my second week of workouts outlined by coach david. Here is what I did:

Tuesday swim :30 run 1:00
Wednesday weights 1:00 bike :30
Thursday run :30
Friday swim :30 bike 1:00
Saturday weights 1:00
Sunday bike 1:15 run :30

Total 7:45

Overll an easy week with some drills. Today is my rest day and tomorrow I start week 3 which will be 9.5 hours.

On saturday Anastasia and I spent a few hours together for valentines day. We decided to go to the y and workout together. We started by running an easy mile on the track. She hasn't run for a while so we started off slow and ran each lap faster than the previous. We finished in 8:40. I used that as my warmup before doing my weight workout. Anastasia wanted to use some of the cardio machines. She used the rower for a while then ran another mile on the treadmill. We both finished up and stretched before heading down to the pool. She brought along a dice to play a game she invented. You roll the die and swim that many laps. Then the next person does the same thing and you take turns untill you get bored. We played the dice game, went on the waterslide and played "shark" which is another game she invented where one person is the shark and chases the other person and tries to kill them(catch them. We don't try to murder anyone at the y) that's a great game because it like intervasls. Overall we had a great time together and it got us out of the house so carly could prepare our secret valentines dinner which was delicious manacotti! Yum! Happy late valentines day everyone!

Sounds like a great time!

Cool idea with the dice game. I've done something similar for a track workout (roll 2 = run 200m, roll 6 = 600m, etc.). I'll have to try it out as a pool workout!

That sounds cute! Except for the part where you tried to kill each other...

So, David is having you train by 'time spent' currently? Are there specific time goals, speed work, etc at this point?

right now it is mostly doing the time but there are intervals mixed in. on my runs i have to do about 5 short bursts at about 5k pace same on the bike etc. but so far no real speed work.
