This week's training didn't start off too well. I tried to run at the in-laws on Sunday, but after almost falling on the ice twice, I decided to call it quits. Then on Monday we weren't able to get all the way home because of the weather and by the time we got home Tuesday I was exhausted! I can't wait for spring and the end of this seemingly endless winter!
Sunday: Ran 0.52 miles before quitting because of icy roads
Wednesday: Bike on trainer 45:00, 15.67 miles
Thursday: Swim 1250yds (200wu, 20 min continuous, 250cd), felt terribly slow, had a hard time keeping form
Friday: Ran 1mile on treadmill, 9:07. Then Liam woke up and I didn't get him back to bed until 11pm so I decided to just go to bed!
Saturday: Bike 30 minutes on trainer, 9.62 miles. Legs were dead again.
So this hasn't been a great training week. I also started doing a core routine on Thursday. I think this may be the reason my legs are so tired. I was supposed to go longer on Saturday's ride but I need to get out for a decent run today (Sunday) so I stopped early to spare my legs. I also skipped the core routine on Saturday in the hope that my legs won't be so tired on today's run.
Only one more week until I officially start the triathlon training program!
