I’m trying something new: if I can only get one post written in a week, this will be it. A rundown of my week in workouts. Enjoy!
Normally I track my workouts Monday through Sunday, but this time, I wanted to add last Sunday’s workout: my first brick!
It was a short one, a 10 mile bike ride—finally, my first outdoor bike ride of the season, and a 3 mile run over at the Yorktown Battlefield. Yes, my legs felt like jello, but it was such a good workout. Saturdays will now be brick days until after we both do our first triathlons later this summer (mine is in August-my 30th birthday gift to myself, and T’s is in September). And since we’re both training for sprint triathlons, the run afterward will likely be no longer than 4-6 miles, but the plan is to try to be speedy.
Long run day: 6 miles at Kiln Creek. Legs felt like lead for the first 3 miles, then they shook out and it was a good run.
3 mile disaster run. First run this summer in the real heat. Ended up walking about 0.5 miles. But as T said: at least we got out there, and a bad run is better than no run. Agreed.
1 mile run around my Mom’s hood to shake out the legs. Didn’t use my Garmin because I know it’s a 1 mile loop—well 1.1 to be exact.
Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon. 80 degrees by 8am—it was a scorcher! Will do a race report soon, slow time (one of my slowest ever) but I ran (well run/walked it) it smart and achieved all of my goals: I stayed hydrated, I finished, and most importantly—I had fun!
Supposed to be a recovery day/rest day, but I really wanted to get a swim in this week.
