That concludes week 8 and unfortunately, I don’t have my stats handy… I tend to calculate and keep track of them as part of work related activities…
As a matter of fact, I DO!
I swam 5500 meters
ran 42 miles
Cycled for 8 hours again this week…
A tiring week, required a couple swim,bike, run days to fulfil all activities. After 4 hours on the bike and a 6 mile run this morning, I have been experiencing slight groin discomfort. I don’t say pain or injury because I have yet to be on a disabled list due to injury… Knock on wood…
Tomorrow I leave on a jet plane for Florida…
Taking at least 2 possibly 3 days off this week…
Going to follow strict carb rules and drink lots of beer and eat lots of junk… I will be a machine next week haha
Weekend update! Even though it is in fact not the weekend but Thursday… Thursday update of last weeks activities almost a week late… Do dah do dah
Last week totals;
Swim 5500 meters
Run 44 miles
Bike 8 hours
I didn’t realize I had sat on a bike for 8 hours last week. That is why updates are so important. It puts the pressure on for this current week, I only planned on 7.5 hours of cycling. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I had a wonderful 16 mile run on Sunday… My plan of taking it slow and easy ending up at a 7.30 average pace. It felt effortless! I credit this to the extra cycling and time holding my breath in the pool…
The crunch is on this week! I am cramming everything into a shortened week, I am heading to South Beach on Sunday. Next week will be a cut back week. I have trained 6 day’s a week the last 8 weeks, I am due for a break… And some heat!
I may attempt to out swim some sharks…
Just a quick update… Week # 6
Swim 5200 meters
Run 42 miles
Bike 7 hrs
I find the longest and hardest part of training is the swimming… 2800 meters swam last Tuesday, I compare to 15-17 miles of running, and it doesn’t go by very quickly.
I will update more late on…
This morning I woke up at the crack of dawn, 5:00am, in order to cycle for an hour and complete 2800 meters in the pool. It isn’t really the crack of dawn at 5, it is still pitch black, I consider it more to be the middle of the night…
I had to get up at 5 to make a quick pit stop at Tim Horton’s for coffee prior to jumping on the bike. Needed my caffeine fix, the orange juice wasn’t cutting it… Either was the fact I hadn’t eaten anything yet…
The cycle was long, the swim felt even longer… On the subject of swimming, I don’t know whether I need to make my sets longer, or what, to make the lengths/ time to achieve the distance go by faster. 2800 meters seems like a long way to swim in a 25 meter pool… Too bad the distance couldn’t be reached as quickly as running… 😉
It is nice being able to complete workouts early, prior to work. The pool isn’t a circus like it is in the afternoon.
Last week totals;
Swim; 5000 meters
Run; 39.5 miles
Cycle; 5.30 hours
Day 1 of week 6 (I think) is complete… Yes, it is week 6… I am planning on ramping up the mileage and completing more bike/run/bike/run workouts… Maybe adding an extra bike/run…
As the mileage has increased, the tiredness has also… I am flying by the seat of my pants, I have used this method with all my training… I will either fail epically or succeed satisfactorily… (Are either of those words?)
How are you enjoying your Tuesday?? How is your training??
