Training Week 1 In Review

Week 1 of training is complete (almost):
Monday: 32 min swim (I would have done more but 2 idiots got in my lane and I couldn't stand it any longer)
Tuesday: Speed session - 1.4mi warm-up/ 2x100/ 3x1000 (300 jog in between)/ 3x200 (100 jog in between)/ 1.5mi cool down
Wednesday: 40 min swim
Thursday: 25 min bike
Friday: rest
Saturday: 8 mile hike 
Sunday: yet to be determined. The pool is closed today and my legs are really sore from hiking so running is out of the question. Looks like I need to get on that bike trainer again!
Week totals (so far):
1hr 10min swimming
1hr running
25min biking
3hr 10min hiking

For the hike we went to McNee Ranch State Park in Pacifica, about a 40 minute drive south of the city. The hike was perfectly challenging! It wasn't too hard so it was still fun, but I definitely got my heart rate up and burned over 1200 calories! There was also some gorgeous scenery so I took a lot of pictures.

Extremely helpful sign.

After over 3 hours of hiking we were hungry! Since the weather was perfect we went to Half Moon Bay Brewery and sat outside to eat. The food was so good I didn't even remember to take a picture of it. But I did get a few of the location.

Awesome brewery on the water!

Delicious beer! The perfect end to that hike.

Plan for Week 2:
Mon - Speed session on the track (I dread these workouts because they're so hard so I like to get them over with early in the week)
Tue - 35 min swim
Wed - Short run and weights
Thur - 45 min swim
Fri - rest
Sat - brick (1hr bike, 30min run)
Sun - reverse brick (1hr run, 30min bike) 
And hopefully I can add a few short rides on my trainer during the week.
