I've managed to make it through the 2nd week of triathlon training - modified still but I'm making progress and that's what counts. I even capped off the week with one of the best "race" experiences I've ever had.
Here's how May 14-20, 2012 played out!
Monday: Planned OFF - "Ran" 1.6 miles on the elliptical in 20 minutes!
Tuesday: Planned 20 min run/30 min strength - did chiropractor and 60 min massage.
Wednesday: Planned 20 min swim - completed 800 in 23 minutes
Thursday: Planned 25 min bike/30 min strength - Walked 1.75 miles in 40 min for a field trip for school.
Friday: Planned OFF
Saturday: Planned 20 min run - Walked around IKEA and a ginormous mall north of Chicago instead :)
Sunday: Planned 20 min swim - Finished a 5k mud run (walked it) and completed 13/13 obstacles in probably a little over an hour!!
Obviously, the plan had some tweaking this week with that mud run and a doctor's appointment in there, but I was thrilled to finally "run" on the elliptical! I've had minimal to no pain in my shin this week (the worst was after the walking on Thursday which was why I skipped the planned workouts). Not having any shin pain after Sunday's mud run was awesome. I'm feeling good enough that I might try some actual running this week mixed in with the elliptical. Wish me luck!
