The first two weeks are down! I'll be honest, I feel half hearted at this point, but hey, I will press on :)
Needed: 2 - 20-30 minute biking, 2 - 20 minute runs, 2 - 15 minute swims
Monday: 1 hour swim
Tuesday: 25 minute bike, 30 minute run
Thursday: 25 minute bike, 30 minute run
I was really liked doing my runs from last year with my run 4 minutes, walk 1 minute ratio, so I've stuck with that for now. I did my biking and running inside, in the morning, as it was still chilly this week.
Needed: 1 - 20 minute bike, 1-30 minute bike, 2 - 20 minute runs, 2 - 20 minute swims
Monday: 1 hour bike
Tuesday: 54 minute run
Wednesday: 1 hour swim
Friday: 1 hour swim
I decided that it would be no harm in combining what I was supposed to do into one session at this juncture. That's why I only rode my bike and ran once. I wanted to get in a full 40 minutes of running, so I did 3 min warm up walk, ran 4 mins, walked 1 x 10, warm down 2 minutes. The last 5 minutes were awful. 5 minutes before I was done, the treadmill next to me was occupied by a man who smelled strongly of axe body spray. Which was gross, but then I got a whiff of what he was trying to cover up - pot. I had to breathe through my mouth the last few minutes, it was so gross!
There was a crazy big half marathon in town on Saturday, so the rest of the people I swim with on Friday morning (from my triathlon group) were resting up. We usually do mostly freestyle, but my coach let me do more of other strokes. I warmed up 400 yds, 10 x 100yds odds IM, evens freestyle, 50yds slow, 20 x 25yds 5 butterfly, 5 backstroke, 5 breaststroke, 5 freestyle odds easy, evens hard, 250 yds cool down. Man, I was really tired after that workout!
This next week I'm taking a couple of days to hang out in the windy city, so I will have to be creative in fitting my workouts in!
