CUW Week of 5/23 Training Plan

Alright, now we're rolling! Week one is in the books, reach out to me if you have any questions, hit any issues, or in general to let me know how it went. Otherwise, it's on towards week #2.

We'll add in a 3rd swim this week, keep the bike at 3 workouts, and the run/strength plan will stay at two workouts for this week. That being said, if you were running more than 2x/week, feel free to continue but be sure to adapt/adjust your workouts since you're including two new sports now.

Week Layout:
- On days where there are two workouts, you can split and do one in the AM and one in the PM.
Monday: Swim #1,
Tuesday: Bike #1, Run #1
Wednesday: Swim #2 followed by strength work.

Friday: Swim #3, Run #2 followed by strength.
