Last week was rest week. Thank goodness. There's only a few weeks to go until the marathon and to be honest, I'm feeling a little burnt out. This is normal for me, but hard to overcome. I just want to lay on the floor and watch tv, not run. But, I keep reminding myself that I've come so far and done so well and it's only a little bit longer until the reward.
Swimming - 4800 yards
Only two swims this week and both were pretty tame. I don't really have a whole lot to say about that. :)
Biking - 19.91 miles
There were two bikes this week. They were both pretty tame too. They were more about cadence than power. I cut one of them short to go on a family walk. There's more important things in life.
Running - 23.14 miles
I had hoped to run a race this past weekend but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate. Our plan was a 10 miler in Pittsburgh but Saturday's forecast was 100% chance of rain. We didn't want to drive 3 hours and pay for a hotel for a soggy race. Instead I just did an easier, shorter run on the treadmill. The hard workout for the week was a track workout of one billion times 400m. Just kidding. It was 12 intervals, but that seems like a lot. I've got to admit, track workouts make me crazy anxious. For being a track kid, the track makes me nervous. But I dominated this workout and that makes me happy.
Strength - 0.25 hours
Just one core workout this week. I better look bangin' in a swimsuit this summer!
Next week is BIG! I hope I survive!
