Training continues and this past week I had two hard workouts to get in (a run-bike-run and a 90 minute ride).
(The italicized words are what I was supposed to do, and the rest is what I actually did.)
Monday: run 50 minutes. Did: taught sculpt in the morning, ran about 30 in the evening. (I had Miss Aitkin practice to get to).
Tuesday: rest. Did: plus walked for about 1 hour, about 3 miles. (I recently read an article talking about recovery days versus resting days. I suppose this would be considered recovery).
Wednesday: Run 40 minutes. Did: I actually got an hour in! Plus taught sculpt.
Thursday: Run 20 – Bike 1 hour – run 30. Did: The second run was only for 20 minutes but I did it! The running was slow and awkward. I tried to bike around town and hated it.
Friday: rest Did: plus danced plenty at a wedding. (I had some sore feet in the morning)
Saturday: Bike 1 Hour Did: nothing! I knew this wouldn’t happen, so I’m not that upset.
Sunday: Bike 1.5 hour Did: 90 minute ride totaling 18.5 miles. My tires were low and the ride was hard, but I got it done!
This week…I’m rearranging to fit in a 5k on Saturday morning. I really want to do well, the last 5k I did was 13 days post-marathon and was pretty painful and slow. I would love to pick up the pace and finish strong.
I also really want to get to a bike store and finally have a long conversation about what I should be saving my pennies for….anyone have bike purchasing tips?
