Vanilla’s Training Log 3-29-15 to 4-4-15

Birthday week training log!!!

3/29:  55+ on the bike with my friend, Eddie.  A little chilly and windy at times.

3/30:  Super easy 3.7 miles at lunch. Weights in the evening.

3/31:  About 7 miles in the evening with my run group.  Coached a 25 minute tempo workout.

4/1:  My Birthday!!!  I took the day off from work to relax and have my own schedule.  First, I ran 8 miles with 5 x 800 getting down to about 6:00 pace.  I relaxed and went shopping.  Later, I went for a swim of 3,200m– my longest in over 18 months.  Ended the day with a nice sushi dinner with my husband.

4/2:  Planned 70 minutes easy on the trainer, but tire issues about 30 minutes into the ride forced me to stop.  Rode 10 miles, then did some core work.  Rainy and cold in the evening, so I wound up on the treadmill for 40 minutes before heading to a retirement party.

4/3:  7.2 miles total with 4 x 5 minutes at goal half pace.  I really wanted to do 5 x 1 minute after the main set, but I had to go really bad, so I had to stop.  2,600m swim in the evening.

4/4:  Weights/core before 12 miles.  Not sure of the pace because my Garmin died after 1 mile!  I just happened to know the route.  The weather was great!  Super sunny and bright.  2,000m in the pool later that day.

Weekly Totals:

Running:  42.95 miles

Biking:  65.15 miles

Swimming:  4.85 miles

Weights:  2+ hours
