It took the whole winter, but I finally feel like I am back on the horse as far as training is concerned. The longer daylight hours and the fact that I can finally see the path and the grass along the river (hardly any snow – yay!) don’t hurt either.
Monday – 6.5 miles along the Hudson River at an 8:44/mi pace
Tuesday – Club Night at the Races at the New Balance Armory. This is the periodic indoor track meet sponsored by the New York Road Runners. I’m not a sprinter, but if there’s a chance to run 10-person relay in costume, I’m in. I did the Women’s 1 mile (6:54) and then ran 5 x 200 meters in our 10,000 meter relay. And I did it in a short red dress. Team costume!
Wednesday – An easy 7.12 miles (9:08/mile)
Thursday – Pretty much a rest day, walked home from school after Parent-Teacher conferences, about 1.25 miles
Friday – Blessed rest with biking to and from school
Saturday – I got back in the pool thinking about next week’s tri championships. 6 x 50 warm up, 10 or 12 x 50 freestyle (I lost count) trying to get to 12 in 10 minutes, which is my goal for the tri. About 30 mins total.
Sunday – It was cold and windy, so I wussed out on an outdoor long run and did my 10 miles on the treadmill. Thank goodness for podcasts!
