Vanilla’s Training Log 1-18-15 to 1-24-15

Getting into a groove with training!

1/18: Prairie Dog Half Marathon:  1:35:25, 4th overall and 1st master.  This was my attempt to jump start back into long runs.  2 mile cooldown after made for 15 total for the day, my longest run in months.  I was pretty tired throughout the day, but I managed a core workout later.

1/19:  Easy 3 miles at lunch. 1,250m swim in the evening.

1/20:  Thought I was ready for a workout, but my legs felt heavy.  5.35 miles in 40 minutes.  Biked an hour in the evening.

1/21:  Super easy on the trainer.  Weights in the evening.

1/22:  7.25 miles in 50:40 with 10 quarters.  Felt controlled and smooth.  Starting to get these down to 6:00 pace again!

1/23:  Weights, then 2,400m swim before work.  An hour spin at lunch with some co-workers.  Tough ladder workout!

1/24:  6.25 miles in 51 minutes.  1,650m swim in the evening with wind gusts of 30-40 mph.  Seemed like a good idea at the time, but so many things kept blowing into the pool, it was definitely hazardous!

Weekly Totals:

Running:  36.95 miles

Biking:  40.35 + 1 hour spin workout

Swimming: 3.29 miles

Weights:  > 2 hours
