Michael Phelps is in the House

Tonight Ashley and I did our first block training. We biked 12 miles on a stationary bike and then ran 3.2 miles on the treadmill. I am happy to report we both finished the session without quitting in the middle. 

It wasn't easy though. I am not very good at biking. I don't know why or what I am doing wrong, but I suck at it. I finished the 12 miles probably 5 minutes after Ashley. Her legs were peddling at 115-120 mph and little legs were struggling to keep it above 100 mph! 

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!! 

We then moved onto running. Before our vacations we were both running pretty well. Now our endurance and stamina is nonexistent. It is so frustrating what a couple of weeks of relaxation can do to your fitness level. We both made it to 3.2 miles, but it felt harder than it should have. 

My goal is to run as much as possible to get ready for the Sailin' Shoes 5K on Saturday, June 19th.  

The Next Michael Phelps is in the House...  
Tonight I swam 1/2 mile in 15 minutes. I am pretty excited about this time, not gonna lie. If I can swim this fast in the Triathlon, I will have a pretty competitive time. 

Here are the top 4 "buddy" times from last year.

Swim---Transition--Bike---Transition--Run---Pace-----Final 17:20------ 5:55-------36:39-------5:27--------23.21----7:32-----1:28:43 17:54-------4:31-------38:48-------3:23-------25:78----8:12-----1:30:05 17:36-------4:23------39:12--------3:38-------25:19----8:10-----1:30:11 14:27-------6:46------37:21--------3:47-------27:56----9:00-----1:30:19

Not sure if I will have enough legs to run a 9 minute mile, but I can wish can't I? What should my goal swim, bike and run times be? And why did it take 6:46 to transition from swimming to biking and 5:27 for another person to transition from biking to running. What am I missing here??
