fitting it in

I looked at my training plan for the week that always get on a sunday night. Sometimes i get twisted into a mess when i look at my diary and try and fit it all in- can i do a long bike the night after a long run, can i fit in the cinema on a wed, what morning will i need a sleep in....nightmare.
This week looks like this (and its only may!)
Monday swim am, run pm
Tuesday swim am, bike and run pm
Wed pm run
Thur swim am, pm bike
fri swim, pm run
sat swim and then windtrainer and core
sun run

erm day off?

So it ended up looking like this
mon rest day (i physically couldnt do anything with work commitments)
tue swim am, gym bike and run pm (before all important haircut)
wed rpm class am, pilates pm
thur swim am, run intervals pm
fri Rpm am, swim pm
sat cycle to work (and work all day) and then cycle home
sun long run

Any tips/ ideas about important sessions i should be doing over others? How do you lot cope with busy schedules?!!

p.s yes i think my coach is mad


  1. I backpacked in NZ for 3 months during the summer of 2008. I fell in love and want to go back! What an amazing place to train :)

  2. Loving that you priorised the all important haircut! I totally relate!!! My coach (and a number of books I've read) says that the most important sessions each week are the long ride, the long run and the brick session. Its a constant juggling act to fit everything in isn't it - don't forget the rest day!!!!

  3. "the coach is mad" haha.

    I always prioritise the run and swim sessions since those are my weaknesses. I remember G telling me biking to work isn't counted as training when I tried to allow it :)
