Day #29, Week #5: Rest Day

FOUR WEEKS completed of the 11 week training plan and the end of the base phase.

The endurance training is progressing well and I feel much stronger than at the start. No missed training sessions. Running has progressed nicely with two PB's along the way and my first sub 30 minute 5k. Early days with cycling since I purchased the new Wilier ten days ago, however the bike training has started very well. Swim training is the greatest challenge and there is still a lot of work to do on my front crawl technique.

It has been difficult to fit in all the planned strength training sessions since the end of week 3, but I will continue to persevere.

Body weight has increased from 73.2 kg to 75.3 kg. Lean body mass has increased from 62.2 kg to 64.5 kg, an increase in muscle of 2.3 kg. Body fat has dropped 2% from 16.2% to 14.3%.

Moving into the building phase for the next 6 weeks and time to incorporate Fartlek training and more intense BRICK training.
