Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I hope have/had a wonderful day!
I have mixed feelings about my training this week. I had high hopes for higher running mileage and getting back in the pool, but I am still tired from Eugene. I started off the week somewhat hard, only to feel somewhat unmotivated and just down right tired towards the end of the week. It was a big reminder that my body needs a good 2-3 weeks of recovery after such a long event.
Sunday: Bike about 44 miles; most of the Boulder 70.3 half ironman course. Very hilly! Then, I ran with Lucy for a mile right after. It took us about 18 mins, which included two potty stops, bird watching, chasing a cat and watching another dog play frisbee. She gets distracted easily, but when she wants to run, those little legs move quick!
Monday: Lift, then 30 mins on the treadmill.
Tuesday: Bike to work! Ran 4 miles at lunch, lifted in the evening.
Wednesday: First workout since the marathon: 5*2 mins with 75 seconds rest. Not bad, but I definitely felt rusty. Weights/core at lunch.
Thursday: Completely unmotivated to do anything in the morning, so I slept in. Got home from work a little later, but I got in 30 minutes on the treadmill.
Friday: Still unmotivated in the morning. Planned to run at lunch, but went out with my department instead. I did get in a very slow 3 miles after work, but it was beautiful and refreshing. Plus, it was my first run in a test pair of Newtons!
Saturday: Gorgeous bike ride north of Boulder, followed by a 20 min run. Everything felt good–no kinks or soreness. Felt good to do a short brick!
Running: 23 miles
Swimming: Big, fat 0 (This needs to change next week)!
Biking: 97 miles
Weight Training: 90 minutes
