Just a quick note to say that training is going really well. Had a great week. Got in all my runs (4) and swam lengths twice, and a good 15k bike ride followed by a short 10 minute run.
Gosh my legs felt like I had jello for blood in them after biking for an hour, then running. I suppose this is totally appropriate training for a tri clinic!
Today is a leg resting day. Sunday I was in the pool for 30 minutes doing lengths, and then ran 14k. Had a great overall pace even though I did 5:1s. I haven't been doing a lot of the longer distances lately so the 5:1 worked great. I was running the running parts at around a 6:50-7:05/km pace (11mm) which is good for my LSD these days. Happy to be watching my speed creep back up now that the winter slog is over. I got a strange cramp in my knee at km10.5, and needed to walk for about 2k, as it was so cramped up I could barely walk, let alone run. I massaged and stretched and took a electrolyte capsule, and finished the last 2k really good and strong.
With yesterday's long bike ride and quick run on exhausted legs my quads have overruled any further activity today. Legs feel heavy, but good! I am looking forward to a great derriere and legs after this summer's training! I am a little vain, I suppose. Aren't we all?
I do need to do some upper body work tonight. My shoulders are sore from the bike ride, but I need to work my arms and chest I think. Really trying to step things up to lose some more weight.
This Saturday is a 10k race. I ran this race last year as my first 10k. It is hard to believe that! I finished so red in the face and ready to heave. I know I won't finish that way this time - I'm running so much better. Also, my coach was waiting at the finish line and I had to finish at 100%. He won't be there this time so the finish line is just for me. And I don't push myself to puking much anymore.
Hope y'all are good!
