Week 4, Day 3 and 4!

I kind of slacked last week with posting about my workouts… So I will try and catch up before this weeks workouts catch up to me!

Wednesday- I went to spin class and then ran 5ish minutes with Mar. Spin class was awesome! We got to ride at a 10! I wore my watch and HRM.  I would like to figure out what my target rates should be… I hit 162 as my highest. But I have no idea what that means. I will do some research and try to figure out what I should know.

Thursday- Rest day. Was hoping to run but it rained. But I guess I kind of ran… I ran through the rain to grab the train, then off the train to the bus, the bus to dinner, dinner to the bus, the bus to the train, and then the train back into school.

Friday- Swim. 100 W/u, 10X75 20 seconds rest, 100 C/d total 950yds. Swim was awesome 9 out of 10 75’s! I was clocking in 1:20-1:25 75’s! I like that I am feeling fast and feeling strong. I know I’m not quite that fast… But eh it’s a start!

Week 4 Day 5 was a doozy while it was happening but looking back it wasn’t that big a deal! See the next post for my recap!

Week 2, Day 3

I started a new set of swim workouts yesterday(Friday). I am happily surprised at how well I am remembering things!! My workout was 10X75 30 seconds rest after each 75. I didn’t hate it and I was, again, very happy to get in and swim. I had a very short moment, when gathering my things for the day, of hesitation on getting in the pool. “Maybe I’ll just skip today?… NOOO I want to go swim why would I think that?” That was that and on my swim suit went. 🙂

10 more weeks of sprint distance training then I have planned to start a 27 week Half-Ironman training.

The swim workouts are going well right now. The only thing I wish was easier was remembering how many laps I’ve done. 🙂

Week 1, Day 4!

I had a 10k race today. I ran with my mom and L. I pushed L in the stroller and by the end of it I think we had 50% tears and 50% happy, giggling, and talking from L. That was the longest I’ve ever pushed him before, I think, but it was an awesome feeling of accomplishment when I was done! It was slower than last years 10k, but only be two minutes. So I’ll take it! Today I am hoping to go pick up a bike from my friend, Mar. Just need to figure out if it’s going to fit in my car and then I need to buy a helmet!!!!!! Yay Tri-Training!

Week 1, Day 3!

Week 1, Day 3

I had no issues getting in the pool at 8am this morning after I dropped L off at daycare. In fact I was very excited to hop in… I may or may not have signed up for the Boulder Half Ironman in June 2015 last night…. Oops 😉

I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to hop in! I know these days won’t happen often so I am going to take advantage of the days when I want to hop right on in.

I did my 15 50’s :30 rest after each 50, for a total of 750yds. It took about 24mins. I was averaging 55 sec 50’s which feel slow but my arms still feel like logs in the pool. Hoping the next few weeks things start to feel good. No more log arms 🙂
