Vanilla’s Training Log 4-12-15 to 4-18-15

Here is my training log leading up to the New Orleans 70.3.

4/12:  Easy 34 mile ride, followed by easy 4 mile run.  Windy on the bike at the end.

4/13:  Rest

4/14:  4.1 miles with my running group–helped coach the workout.

4/15:  TRACK!!!  Met my friend/co-worker, Erin, for a short track session before her Boston and my New Orleans.  She had 8 x 400, and I had 6 x 200.  Short, easy warm-up of 2 miles to the track, then we did our own thing.  I was shocked that I was hitting the 200s in 40-41.  They hurt, but hurt so good. I rested for 200 in between each rep, but I could have shortened the rest.  I finished my workout before Erin, so I jumped in with her at the end of her last 3 400s to run in with her.  Felt good to be back at the track, and it made me think that I want to get back into running after this summer.  Hit the pool in the evening for 1,050m easy.  Relaxed in the sauna after.

4/16:  Easy 30 minutes on the trainer in the morning.  1,000m easy swim after work.

4/17:  3 miles before leaving for the airport.

4/18:  3.25 miles in New Orleans.  Hello Humidity!  It was 80 degrees with over 90% humidity.  I was drenched!  The rest of the day was easy–packet pick-up, lunch, nap, gathering gear.

Weekly Totals:

Running:  21.85 miles

Biking:  34 miles + 30 minutes
