I swear this blog is more than just posts about my weekly training. Boring! Expect pictures of the kiddo this week, an "exciting" post about my new workout clothes, and maybe a race report *wink*.
But first, here's all the training I did this week.
Swimming - 5200 yards
Just two swims this week. One swim was nice and easy with a lot of backstroke. The other swim had a million x 75 yards (or something like that) with descending paces. By the end of it I was swimming as fast as my T-Rex arms would take me and only getting about 5-7 seconds of "rest" between sets. Coach!!!!
Biking - 22.89 miles
I had three bikes on the schedule this week. One of them was optional and I just wasn't feeling it, so I only did the other two. One bike was just a spin. The other was a threshold workout. Seriously, I have no idea what I'm doing but coach keeps saying I'm doing them perfectly, so I'll keep on keeping on.
Running - 33.15 miles
Unfortunately, I never made it off the treadmill this week - not even for the long run. Is winter over yet? Most of the runs were easy, although I did have a tough track workout with lots of 800s, which I nailed. The long run was 15 miles...ON THE FREAKIN' TREADMILL!!! I also had some pace stuff short run off the bike. Lots and lots of miles (for me).
Strength - 0.75 hours
No core work this week on the schedule. Yay!!! I did have one basic strength workout and a lunge matrix pre-long run. Getting stronger!
Extra!!! I also went to water aerobics with my mom. While I can't say I found this workout particularly difficult, it was a nice evening with my mom.
