Training for Triathlons at 68--Setting Training Zones

Another week where the plan didn’t work out.  This week was intended to update training zones.  In cycling the training zones are based on the average power held for 20 minutes.  In running I use a 5K to set a training pace.  And in swimming I use average 100 yard pace in a 1000-yard swim.  These are all very hard efforts.

I did set new cycling zones early in the week but got busy with family errands and couldn’t get to the swim.

Saturday I did run the 5K but afterwards my Achilles hurt badly and it took all weekend to feel better.  This remains a concern.
