This week ended much better than it started training-wise. We ended up needing to do a bunch of work at the greenhouse at the beginning of the week so training was sacrificed. But, we have a buyer for the greenhouse and are supposed to close in the next few days! Here's the rundown on what I did get done:
Sunday: no workout
Monday: no workout
Tuesday: Was supposed to be a 45 minute bike, turned into 4 miles on the mountain bike with Liam in the Burley. Going up a soft gravel hill while pulling a child in a trailer is hard!
Wednesday: Swam 2400yds (2000 continuous, yay!); Ran 3 miles, 30:55, with stroller
Thursday: Rest (swapped with Saturday because of weather forecast)
Friday: Swam 1925yds; Ran 3.14 miles to greenhouse to meet new owners with keys. Against a 20mph wind, with the stroller acting like a sail pushing me in the wrong direction. So much for an easy 3! Plan was to walk back home. Ended up running the 3 miles back home with dad, again pushing the stroller, 31:02.
Saturday: 12 miles, 2:03:14. I am really excited about this. Had I added another 1.1 at the same pace, it would put me within 5 minutes of my half-marathon PR! I felt great when I got done and got a great confidence boost.
Bike: 4 mi (Yikes!)
Next week is week 6 of the 20-week training program I'm following. Two rest days scheduled for next week. The instructions for one of the days says, "Recovery day, do as little as possible...". I think that I will have no problem following instructions for that day!
