I hope that what I think was week one wasn’t some sort of “recovery” week. Because I need the rest week NOW. Stat.
Monday started with a swim, which as last monday was pretty short. I actually cut it shorter because I got to the gym without goggles. Then I had to Look through my bag for said goggles before deciding they had to be at home. Then I had to go home, get the goggles…
I need to be like this kid. I found this one another Blog….so check them out!
Tuesday- I had the “Laundry generator” workout, swim and run and swim and run. It went really well, as in, I enjoyed it very much. One huge win was that I did one of the runs on the hated route, and bested the hill. It surprised me.
I also had leg weights in the afternoon. They were tough. My legs have been feeling the cumulative effects of the building weeks.
Wednesday I Had a Brick… SO that was great. I cycled and ran a bit. The run took me on the same hated route of the Laundry Generator and surprisingly..I won on the hill again.
Thursday- speed workout. My speed workouts continue on the treadmill. Not ideal, but…they are a workout. I did 800 repeats 7 of them. Sweated my face off. This week I noted that I was able to improve the interval speed as well. So I was pretty stoked.
Friday…I survived an almost 2 mile swim, followed by a 3 mile run. This is the workout that handed me my rear about 2 weeks ago. Instructional workout. My legs were feeling kind of “bad” not injured or anything just kind of lousy. I ran on them anyway and they cooperated. Something I wish I had known about during my last marathon for when my legs started to feel “bad”
I went and swam Lucky’s Lake (Lake Cane) again with a new pal…and we had a good time. I then did a brick in the heat and remembered about Florida’s endless summers. It is here. I got both dehydrated and sunburned on a 1 hour run.
Sunday…I went to a different trail and traversed 10 miles, very slowly.
It was beautiful, but pretty far away for regular running and maybe because I got so lost getting there AND back, I think I’ll avoid the Van Fleet for a few weeks….
So There’s the week. Whew 73 total miles. swim…bike…run.
Now…hoping it is time for a restful week.
