My last week of recovery was hot, exciting and wet.
All thanks to Tropical Storm Andrea.
My work trip to Orlando was less tropical paradise and more storm chaser paradise, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t find it at least a little bit exciting. I must be some kind of adrenaline junkie.
I also got in some great workouts:
Sunday: Back-to-back spinning classes (counted as 30 miles); strength training at night
Monday: 5 miles, 8:33 pace
Tuesday: 5 miles, 8:34 pace; unplanned 20 mile bike ride to get Perfect Foods bars at an Orlando Fresh Market. I’m addicted to those bars.
Wednesday: 4 miles, 8:30 pace; 20 minute swim of unknown distance in the hotel pool.
Friday: 10 mile run, 8:40 pace
Saturday: 55 minute swim, 2000 yards; training with coach, speedwork and one mile at 7:57 pace (hot darn it hurt!)
Runs: 25 miles
Bike: 50 miles
Swim: 2000 yards
Next week, training for the SoJo marathon begins in earnest! At least ice baths feel better in the summer…
