Vanilla’s Training Log 5-19-13

Getting back into the training groove this week!  Overall, I felt good and was able to log some good runs!

Sunday:  Westminster Women’s 5K.  Fourth place overall in 22:36, my slowest 5K in about 10 years, but my fastest 3 miles in nearly two months.  Lost about 30 seconds due to having to walk/jog through a flooded tunnel under the road.  Overall, I was happy with my performance running a negative with a 6:59 last mile.  I relaxed the rest of the day, but fit in some weights and core exercises later in the afternoon.

Monday:  Easy swim of 1,300 yards.  Biked to the pool, work and around Boulder.  Visited a new gym at lunch to lift.

Tuesday:  5*90″ with 75″ rest, and did an easy shakeout run of 30 minutes at lunch.  Biked to and from work again!

Wednesday:  1,800 swim; weights, and 30 minutes on the treadmill in the evening.  Major thunderstorms forced me on the mill.  Ran easy with the last 5 minutes under 7:00.  Biked to/from work.

Relaxing after the mile race!

Thursday:  Planned tempo run of 12′, but I felt awful after 2 minutes into it.  Cut it to 10″ and stopped after a total of 4 miles.  Walked for another 30 minutes.  Later that evening, watched my hubby blast through a mile race, and then ran the mile fun run with Lucy.  She finished in 10:10, even with a potty stop!

Friday:  Biked to/from work.  Easy run after work.

Saturday:  Double brick day!  14 mile ride followed by a 30 minute run, then 28 miles on the bike, followed by a 4 mile run.  My legs felt a little flat on the second bike, but felt fine on the run.


Weekly Totals:

Running:  34.2 miles

Biking:  86 miles

Swimming:  3,100 yards (1.76 miles)
