Well, things are finally back to my version of normal. This past week saw me back in the pool and on the bike. I also had to do another FTP / CP test so Coach Ming could figure out if I actually improved on the bike over the last few months. Thankfully I did. You can read all about it here. These next few weeks are going to be all about the bike. My running has been short and easy which is good because my knees have been cranky. More on that in another post. For now, I'm linking up with the #Bestfoot ladies to recap my week of training.
Monday: a.m. 2550m swim p.m. 60 minute easy ride
Tuesday: TEST day
Wednesday: 2000m swim, 90 minute ride with 5s max sprints every 20 minutes
Thursday: 40 minute interval ride, including 2 minutes all out. OMG was this ever HARD. My data profile looks like a mountain range, ha ha. This bit of insanity was followed by a 5km run = FIRST BRICK OF THE YEAR!
Friday: was supposed to take it off but I swam 1800m instead
Saturday: First outside ride! Second brick of the year! 62km followed by 6km run.
Sunday: 10km easy run
Total time: 9h 50 minutes.
My training hours this week were more than double what I did last week, ha ha. This didn't really feel like that much of a big week until last night at around 7:00 pm when all of a sudden I just wanted to go to bed. I made it to 9:00 pm, ha ha. This coming week is listed as a "medium volume" week. I only have 2 runs this week, both of them are off the bike and he's brought back my strength routine. Thank goodness because I was starting to feel a bit doughy.
I know a lot of you raced this weekend so I'll be stalking your blogs for recaps!
If you didn't race, how was your week of training?
