Upcoming races

I've got three races in five weekends - a bike/canoe race next weekend (which i'm training through), a 30 hour adventure race at the end of June, and a 27 mile swim race on July 13th.  All of my daily cool off showers while vacationing in Puerto Rico were spent mulling potential training schedules in my head - trying to come up with something that would have me raring to go for each event.  Here's the result of those showers:

week 1: 10 minute swim, 10 minute run, 10 minute bike, 30 minute paddle
week 2: 10 minute run, 10 minute bike, 10 minute swim, RACE (bike/paddle)
week 3: 10 minute bike, 10 minute run, 10 minute swim, 30 minute paddle
week 4: 20 min bike/run, 10 min swim, RACE (30 hour AR)
week 5: 2 x 10 minute swim, 40 minute swim
week 6: 10 min swim, 20 min swim, RACE (27 mile swim)

Week 1 is over and went pretty well, though it had been a long time since i'd swam or bike and both hurt particularly bad.  I'm also focusing on more outside work this time around - hoping to do some of the swimming after the AR in the river, and both my run and bike this week involved tire drags on an outside course.  Each of those required an additional shower.
