Vanilla’s Training Log 4-26-15 to 5-2-15

It’s Memorial Day weekend, so why not start posting my training logs for May?!

4/26:  Watched the replay of the London Marathon, then lifted and swam 1,650m.  Easy 4.15 miles in 35 minutes later that day.

4/27:  5.5 miles with 5 x 90″ hard.

4/28:  First bike ride since New Orleans.  17.5 miles on the trainer.  Not gonna lie, this was tough, and my legs still felt heavy.  4.4 miles of hills in the evening coaching my running group.

4/29:  Weights followed by 15 miles on the trainer with 5 x 1 min hard.  Easy run at lunch with our new HR Director.  4.85 miles in about 41 minutes.

4/30:  3,100m total in the pool including a master’s swim class.  Tough workouts, but the sun was out, and the pool was warm.  I had to stay at home for most of the day for a home repair, so I was able to squeeze in an easy 4 before heading to the office.

5/1:  Slept awful last night.  Managed a weight workout before work.  Got in a run at lunch.  5 miles in 39:37 with 6 x 30″ hard.

5/2:  Weights, then easy 4 in the morning.  1,800m swim at night.

Weekly Totals:

Running:  31.9 miles

Biking:  32.5 miles

Swimming:  4.07 miles

Weights:  2+ hours

  1. Thanks! I do find it difficult to juggle training with working full-time + trying to be a supportive wife. My husband races too, so we definitely have to make sure we communicate often! After August, I’m not really sure what to focus on. I really want to get back into running and see what these old legs can do—but I also enjoy the cross-training. Thanks for reading & best wishes on your running goals!
