I was on my spring break from work this week! It was great to have a week off work to relax a little-especially given I got home super late Sunday night from my trip to Texas! Here’s what my week of training looked like:
Sunday: Stuck in Texas still, so rather than bike on a miserable gym bike for my long ride, I decided to just do a 5 mile run on the treadmill, and then a quick lift with the freeweights they had in the hotel. Monday: Back home! I decided to do my “long” bike ride in the morning, but I was SO tired from the long trip/late night the night before, that all I could manage was 60 minutes on the bike. Oh well, better than nothing!
Tuesday: It was a pretty nice day out, so I decided to take the dogs out running with me TOGETHER! I got this leash that is two in one basically, so I only hold one handle but they’re both strapped together. It worked out pretty well and both dogs did great for the most part! We ran 5.25 miles together!
In the afternoon, I went to the pool and swam 1,600m. Then in the evening, I went to the pool AGAIN with John and swam another 800m!
Wednesday: I had a pretty decent 90 minute bike workout in the morning! I worked on keeping in zone 3 most of the time.
Thursday: It snowed Wednesday night (again!), so I couldn’t take the dogs running with me, but I went for 5.25 miles on my own on the cold, snowy streets!
Friday: I actually had to go in to work to help a friend cover basketball practices, so in the morning, I squeezed in an hour bike ride at zone 3 power, then while I was at work, I got in a 40 minute lift!
Saturday: I planned on a 16+ mile run, but when I got out there, I was NOT feelin it, and neither were my dogs. :/ so instead I just did an easy 10 miles and then spent some time stretching!
How was your week of training? Is it spring where you live yet?
