HIM Training: Week 6

by Meghann on July 18, 2011

Is it just me or are these reviews coming faster and faster? I can’t believe I’m already in week! Only 10 more weeks now!

A Review:

The original plan:

What actually went down:

I knew when I built my plan that I would be on a tropical island this past week with very limited access to equipment, a bike, or a gym. I had already scaled the plan down a lot, but the addition of my injury had me scaling it back even further. Still, for being on vacation on a tiny island, I’d say I did pretty good.








  • Rest


By the Numbers:

  • Swim: 3250 yds
  • Bike: 13 miles
  • Run: 7 miles (Walk): 3.1 miles
  • Strength: 0 Days

I’ll consider this week a taper week. I took it easy, scaled back, and enjoyed my vacation. I went into it not expecting much and I think that helped. Trying to plan a million workouts on vacation would have been crazy. Going in with moderate expectations and building vacation into the training plan was key. Otherwise I would have felt nothing, but guilt the whole time for not being able to keep up with it.

Do you pencil vacations into your training plans?


I had a big, beautiful salad for lunch today.

Look at all those colors. Colorful food makes me happy. :)

In the bowl:

  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Olives
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Roasted Red Peppers
  • Almond
  • Hummus
  • Mozzarella Cheese


Cinnamon Pita Chips on the side. They were the perfect sweet ending treat to lunch.


This Monday is flying by. Is it really 2:00 already? Wowza!
