This week was insane and amazing and I can absolutely feel it in my body. I have a tentative triathlon training plan I’ve been following, and this week I blew it out of the water. I’m so thrilled that this is my first 100+ mile week and all that I accomplished during it. Weeks like this make me so thankful for what I can do, and adding the running miles back in slowly has allowed me to really diversify my workouts. I’m loving it!
Here they are:
Monday: Always will be a rest day when I don’t have to work around my training plan at all.
Tuesday: 1500 yards in the pool + 25 minutes of running, where I got in 2.57 miles.
Wednesday: I had big plans for Thursday morning, and I was having trouble talking myself into working out on Wednesday to make sure I’d have everything in the tank for Thursday. I finally talked myself into 45 minutes on the stationary bike for 13.6 miles.
Thursday: I met up with Beth for 42 miles on the Suncoast Trail. This was an awesome ride, and it was the first time I broke 40 officially on the Garmin. The last 10 miles was straight into a massive headwind, and it was hard.
Friday: I wanted to get in a longer swim, and I did 2500 yards in the pool and 30 minutes on the treadmill with 8 minutes run and 2 minutes walking. I pushed the running a little too fast at the end, and I ended up feeling something in my foot again.
Saturday: I met up again with Beth. This time her boyfriend Nick and his friend Cecil had found a group ride that left from a Publix in Dunedin and we rode 34 miles on the roads and trails around there. It was a lot of fun, and it was a great way to break out of my comfort zone. I’m going to do a full blog post on it this week, because there’s a lot of stuff I want to remember and share.
Sunday: I switched tomorrow’s rest day for today’s brick, because my body is tired. That’s in the ranking for the highest amount of time I’ve put into working out in one week, and even though I’m so close to 100 miles for the week, I’m going to have to stop there. My gas tank is empty.
