Vanilla’s Training Log 2-22-15 to 2-28-15

Winter hit us hard this week in Colorado!

2/22:  33.7 miles on the trainer followed by 3 miles.  Tried out my new snowshoes for 30 minutes on the trails.  What a great workout!

2/23:  Weights then easy 3 miles.  1,850m swim in the evening.

2/24:  Super tired in the morning, so I slept in.  4.5 miles with my run group in the evening.  It was a hill workout called dice hills.  At the beginning of each workout, someone rolls the dice to determine how long to run.  A 1 = 40 seconds all the way to 6 = 90 seconds.  Then you run back down to the start, roll again and go.  Fun way to do hills!  We also got lucky that it stopped snowing for the day and was 40–enough to melt the snow on the roads in time for the next round!

2/25:  7.05 miles in just over 52 mins with 3 miles in 20:22.  2,750m swim in the evening.

2/26:  Weights followed by 15.25 on the bike.  Hour easy run in the evening on the treadmill.  Over 8 inches of snow on the ground!

2/27:  Easy hour on the bike.  Easy hour on the treadmill.

2/28:  Still inside!  7 miles on the treadmill with 10 x 75 seconds.  Weights, followed by 2,050 yd swim.

Weekly Totals:

Running:  38.6 miles

Biking:  66.7 miles

Swimming:  4 miles

Weights:  2+ hours
