Sunday- Complete and total rest day! I earned it!
Run: Killer track workout in the very early morning with Pat-
Warm-up - 1.25 miles
3 x (2 x 1200m) 2 minutes rest; 4 between each set; Managed to do all of them under 5 minutes (average 6:28 mile pace), with the last one at a blazing 4:45 (6:08 mile pace)!
Cool Down - 1.25 miles Total: 7 miles
I got there a few minutes late, the coach wasn't there, and I was really tired. So I couldn't think of a good workout to do, and I thought if I only do at 1600m (one mile), then at least that would be something. So I did about 250m warm-up, then 10 x 100m. At first I was trying to do them every two minutes (swimming takes about 1:40, then I get 20 seconds rest in between, starting at the end of the two minutes); I could not get my breathing rhythm right, so I gave myself more rest. I know, I know...such a cheater! After those were done I just swam until I got to 1600m. There were about 10 minutes left in the hour session and I asked one of the young women there taking over for the coach if they needed help pulling the covers over the lanes. So I stayed. Blah. But I got a couple more hundreds in and chatted with my friend Jennifer about Millerton. Total: about 1800m
Ride: 32 miles on the beautiful road I did last Tuesday. Here are a few snapshots of the view (although they really don't do justice to the real thing!):
|Beware: Goofball on the road! This is my half way point!|
Tuesday evenings I coach track workouts for the Team in Training Triathlon team. Here are a few of them, after they rocked around the track:
|Me, Matt H., Matt B., Michelle and Ron|
Run- A short, quick tempo run with my friend Jodi. It's been fun to get to incorporate girl-time with working out! The first couple months of the year were a little lonely; the kind of lonely where you're surrounded by people, but not deep relationships. This week reminded me I could have the best of both worlds!
Total: 4 miles: 1 warm-up, 2 @ 7:10, 7:03, 1 cool-down.
|Jodi & me after a super run!|
Rode to my friend Sarah's house for accountability and then back to pick up the kids from school. Barely made it in time!
Total: 20.5 miles
|Sarah and me before I headed back. We were roommates for two years in college, and a very special friend!|
|Gia and I at Skywalk! Sorry it's blurry- my 6 year old was acting as the photographer. You couldn't tell from this picture, but Gia is such a beautiful woman, inside & out! She is also Pat's wife!|
|Two of my kids, Gia and one of hers...we had all the trampolines to ourselves! Woo hoo!|
Tomorrow I will be doing a brick with the TNT Tri group. Should be a lot of fun...and is expected to rain again!
