I had a crazy busy week at work and ended up missing the two swims that were scheduled on Monday and Wednesday. Two back to back shoots with 6:30-7:00 am call times makes morning workouts a wee bit difficult. Although I did get up at 4:00 am on Tuesday to go to the gym. Yes, I'm crazy. I really wanted to do Justin's workout and see how long it actually took me when I could focus. I was done in 45 minutes and that was with some added bits from my physio routine. That's my kind of workout!
Whatever my week lacked in volume I made up for in intensity. At least that's what my Training Stress score shows in Training Peaks. I guess that's what happens when you throw in a two hour ride followed by an 8km race. This is what I got up to this past week.
Monday: OFF - Had to be at work for 6:30 am. So gross.
Tuesday: a.m. - 45 minutes at the gym, p.m. 7.5km run
Wednesday: 40 minute trainer ride. Was supposed to ride 80 minutes but really didn't feel like it.
Thursday: 8.25km run
Friday: 51km ride OUTSIDE with G and the boys. It was an absolutely PERFECT day.
Saturday: 5km warm up run, 8km race. I had wanted to get 16km in that day but once I was finished the race, I didn't feel like running that extra 3km. Celebrated that evening with this and some amazing pizza.
Total time: 7h 44 minutes. This week I'll get back to building up again. I hope to hit that 16km mark for my long run on Saturday. Seems so weird to say that but that's my new reality these days. I'm building my running legs back up. It's definitely not easy.
Tomorrow is Tri Talk Tuesday and we're discussing the Bike and how to improve so check back tomorrow and get in on the link up!
