We had a funeral to attend out of town this week so that threw a bit of a wrench into the plans. I had to switch a couple workouts around, but that's how life goes, isn't it. Anyway, here's the breakdown of this past week's workouts:
Monday 6/18/12 - Plan REST - Completed REST
Tuesday 6/19/12 - Plan Run :35/Strength :30 - Completed 1 hour bike (14 miles). Then 30 min mixed strength training.
Wednesday 6/20/12 - Plan Swim :25 - Completed Swim/Run brick: 1000 yd swim in 22:38 (lots of drills & I didn't time the rest breaks) then 2 mile treadmill run in 20:21.
Thursday 6/21/12 - Plan Bike :55/Strength :30 - Completed a 2 mile bike ride, but rode in the streets. It was unnerving and I almost crashed once.
Friday 6/22/12 - Plan REST - Completed REST but also spent a little time walking around an outlet mall.
Saturday 6/23/12 - Plan Run :30 - Completed 3.2 miles in 38 and change. 2 mile run in 21:46 and 1.2 mile wu/cd in 17:04. The run hurt a bit and I felt like I never found my groove. I couldn't even make it the full 2 miles without a walk break, which pissed me off more than the overall slow pace.
Sunday 6/24/12 - Plan Bike :40 - Completed a 20 mile bike ride (in 1:27 - just shy of a 14 mph average) and did level 1 of the 30 Day Shred (25 min strength). On the bike ride, I rode a lot of it on trails but also quite a bit on actual streets. Even had to stop at lights and figure out which lane I should be in.
I clearly went overboard on the biking this week, but since my running is definitely sub-par I felt I needed to make up for it somewhere. I think my biggest frustrations at this point are not being able to run as well (or as far, or as often) as I'd like (or in my mind that I think I should be able to run) and that my swimming still feels so weak. I know it will get better and I can't expect to be a great swimmer right away - there is some element of a learning curve
