So after this week I will be a quarter of the way done with my training. It goes fast! Week four is actually suppose to be a "Rest" week, however looking at the training it doesn't seem very restful. I guess if I want to I can either have an easy ride on Wednesday or a day of rest and that's all I see that is different lol.
So last week went well. My bike ride on Wednesday was about 20 miles. I went up to the Banks-Vernonia trail. It's actually a gradual incline the whole way up, so the first 10 miles or so was my workout. Then once I turned around I felt like coming back took me like 15 minutes. :) It's a very nice ride though, really pretty. I am looking forward to riding even further this week.
My swims were good too- my whole neck thing didn't bother me. Phew! On Friday my main set was 1,500 yards! All together on Friday I swam about 2,000 yards... I'm getting up there. (Laughing to myself and remembering days when I would swim about 10,000 yards.)
You heard about my wimpy run on Tuesday, I ran... but it was very, very slow. Thursday's run was better and a little longer- I ran about 2.7 miles. The good news is that my knees didn't bother me the next day.
My bad news, once again is that I failed to bike on the weekend. I was gone on Saturday allll day so I was going to ride on Sunday. And the weather just got to me. I don't have a rain jacket to ride in... and that's what it did on Sunday, rained. (At least during the period of which I could've gone out to ride.) So I skipped my long ride over the weekend, oops. I did ride my bike to and from the gym on Friday- with a little extra mileage thrown in on the way back, so at least I did that.
I am keeping my fingers crossed for better weather this week! At least when I ride and run, it makes both a lot easier when it's sunny. I am looking forward to my big swim on Friday. David and I have a special "date" on Friday night. I have to swim a time 1,000. So big Dave is going to be my counter for me. It should be interesting- I don't think my husband has actually ever seen me swim like that before. Afterwards I am thinking.... cheeseburger! hahahhaha
