This is my first go at a weekly training recap, and it feels almost as awkward as a first date… or my first blog post. I guess I’ll just launch right into it and babble the way I did on my first date with Barry (it’s a miracle he asked me out on a second date).
Monday – 3 mile progression run, mile splits: 10:17, 9:48, 9:26
Tuesday – Rest day. I didn’t feel up to cross training, so I opted for a rest day and cooked a favorite new summer dish for dinner instead.
Wednesday – 3 mile run on my new, yet-to-be-named treadmill!
Love at first sight. <3
Thursday – 10.3 mile bike ride with Barry on the Dora and New River trails.
I don’t know how triathletes get off their bike and head out on the run. My legs always feel like lead when I get off of my bike.
Friday – 3 mile morning run on my new treadmill
A little blurry Duck Dynasty with my morning run.
Saturday – 6 mile long run with Kim on the Dora and New River Trails. It absolutely poured during the second half of the run.
Sunday – Rest day.
This week’s schedule:
Monday – 4 miles
Tuesday – XT
Wednesday – 3 miles
Thursday – Rest
Friday – 4 miles
Saturday- 6 miles
Sunday – 2 miles
This will be the first of 8 weeks at 5 days of running per week. Aside from a few sporadic weeks here and there, I typically don’t run more than 4 days per week. But I’m looking forward to shaking things up!
