This week I've kept plugging away at the cross training and managed to get in a couple of really good (although short) runs. It's progress. Sunday night I actually had sore running muscles. I haven't felt like that in a LONG time. I even have an official training plan again (official because it's in a spreadsheet). Structure is a good thing, people!
Monday 2-3-14 plan: REST/ actual: REST plus stretching and rolling
Tuesday 2-4-14 plan: RUN 30/XT 30 / actual: RUN 3 miles on indoor track in 30:15 (WOOT!!), XT Arc Trainer 1.3 miles in 30 min. I loved this run. It was a huge confidence booster and my heel didn't really hurt. My calves and achilles need to relearn how to run in Newtons thought.
Wednesday 2-5-14 plan: SWIM 45 / actual: SWIM 1300 yds in 45 min
Thursday 2-6-14 plan: BIKE 90 / actual: BIKE 90 with no real clue as to distance or speed because my Garmin was dead. I guessed 13 mph for 19.5 miles. This ride really wasn't fun.
Friday 2-7-14 plan: SWIM 45 / actual: SWIM 1600 yds in 48 min. I have a baseline now for this workout and I want to see those 100s drop.
Saturday 2-8-14 plan: RUN 30/XT 30 / actual: RUN 3 miles on indoor track in 29:58 (WHAT?!?!?, I averaged a 9:59 pace!), XT Arc Trainer 1.46 miles in 30 min. This run shocked me. It was uncomfortable with my calves SCREAMING. I really thought I was running so much slower than this so seeing my splits at the end was awesome.
Sunday 2-9-14 plan: BIKE 90 / actual BIKE 20.24 miles in 90 minutes. Better ride than on Thursday but I'm not loving how much my girlie bits are still not used to these long rides.
