I haven't been feeling so hot this week. A little bit of a virus hit me on Monday night so my training has been a little bit iffy.
Monday: Swam in the morning, then biked to Squire farm at night (16 miles total)
Tuesday: I had meant to do the Columbia beach swim, but it was looking threatening as far as the weather was concerned so I decided not to make the 45 minute trek. So it was a total rest day!
Wednesday: Should have went to Master's but I woke up at 5 with a headache and very tired so I slept an extra hour. Then I woke up feeling VERY guilty. So I did the Cindy Crawford New Challenge workout (1 hour of toning- it is bad ass, trust me) and then went for a 20 minute run to work out the lactic acid
Let me take a break for a second to tell you how absolutely wonderful my patella band is:
This thing is a lifesaver! It has been a month since I have been able to run more than a quarter mile without pain in my knee. It has been so bad that I have done zero running outside competitions for weeks. Until I got this wonderful invention! I ran 2 whole miles yesterday with NO PAIN! I'm back :)
Today: I just got back from swim practice. It was a distance day. Great for me- as much as I hate doing it. The longest distance we did was 1000 meters. It was torturously boring, but I did it in 18 minutes (I know, I'm not a speed demon, but I was happy with it!). Our total yardage today was 3600 meters
So tonight I am going to go for a bike ride, tomorrow I'll go to swim practice again, and then I'm off to upstate New York to go to the Musselman Half Ironman. It should be a lot of fun. I am going to try to get a lot of training in since I'll have to start my taper soon, but it might be difficult.
Catch up with Ya'll later!
