Du Review!

I decided that I am going to train for a duathlon that takes place on May 2nd. My dad is going to let me borrow his old racing bike since he has a brand new one. Today I went to the gym and had my own mini duathlon to see what it feels like. I ran 2 miles on the track, biked 8 miles on the stationary bike and ran 2 miles on the track. I felt good and really enjoyed the work out. I did end up having some knee pain though when transitioning from the bike to the run. I don't think it was caused from the bike though. I have experienced this pain over the past couple weeks when I run. I am going to see a sport medicine doctor about it since I soon begin training for my first trail half marathon. I won't stop with my running, but I may need to slow down the pace in the meantime.

Here is this weeks exercise results (it's much easier to keep track now that I have my daily running & exercise log book):

Monday: rest day
Tuesday: 5.5 mile run; 4 miles on TM, 1.5 miles on track
Wednesday: weights for shoulders, 35 minutes AMT intervals at 18% and 4%
Thursday: 5.5 mile run on TM
Friday: weights for chest, back & shoulders, 30 minutes stationary bike
Saturday: weights for biceps & triceps, abs, 3 mile run on track
Sunday: mini duathlon; 2 mile run on track, 8 miles on stationary bike, 2 mile run on track

Total Mileage: 18 miles
Weight: 118.6 lbs


  1. Good call to get it checked out early. I hope it starts feeling better soon! Great job on your Du workout!


  2. Sounds like a fun workout.
    Hope your doctors visit goes well.

  3. Congrats and sorry the knee casued issues.
