Wednesday Workout Recap

For those of you who might actually be reading this and are following along (which I really can’t think there are many at this point) I haven’t gotten around to posting the workout recap from last week. So what do I have to say about last week? Well, I took an extra off day early in the week, but I made it up later in the week. I also shuffled my workouts around. Whoops.

Monday: Standard rest day.

Tuesday: Accidently took another rest day here. Actually, it wasn’t by accident. My commute home from work was a pain due to all this metro crap and I was… angry. Moving on.

Wednesday: Brick time! 1 Hour run followed by a 2 mile bike.

Thursday: So here is where this week gets fun. Metro is a disaster and my office is approximately 6.5 miles from my house. So… why not run to work? Yes, that’s what I did. It was actually quite fun.

Friday: What was on the calendar? 1 hour trainer ride. What did I actually do? Bike commuted to and from work. Collectively this was about 1 hour and 45 minutes of commuting (both too and from work) but there were a lot of stop lights.

Saturday: 1700m swim. I got to the pool early enough that I got an entire lane to myself. That is always fun.

Sunday: 2 hour bike ride. Yeah.

On to next week!

Wednesday Workout Recap

So I’m stealing this idea from Megan as she does this as well on Wednesdays. Not that I think any of you will actually gives two shits about what my training plan and workouts are like. Mostly this is for me and I feel like if I put this out there in the open, then I am less likely to skip anything. Or at least I will hold myself more accountable.

So here we go.

Please not this is last weeks workout schedule…

Monday: Monday’s are typically my rest days but since this was a holiday and there was an open water swim practice available at Fort Ritchie, I opted to do that instead swapping my rest day on Monday for the swim workout I had scheduled for Wednesday. I swam about 900 meters in my wetsuit and then another 300 minutes without. Followed that swim up with a 2 mile run.

Tuesday: 1 Hour Trainer Ride followed by a 2 mile run.

Wednesday: This is where I took my Monday’s rest day.

Thursday: 1 Hour Trainer Ride

Friday: What was on the calendar: 4 Miles Easy Run. What I actually did: 3 Miles easy run. So sue me. I promise I’ll get better.

Saturday: 110 Minutes of biking (although if you add up the actual workout, it was actually 115). Megan, Kristin and I met up in Columbia to do a 2ish mile loop at Columbia Gateway. I think I got 12 laps, in but honestly I stopped counting after 8.

Sunday: 6 Mile Run. I was under the impression that today’s weather was going to be abysmal so I woke up as early as I could manage to get it done. Turns out it didn’t start raining and getting gross until closer to 4pm. Oh well. It allowed me to be lazy for a good part of the day.

In other news, I really dislike the fact that we went from spring in New England type weather to August temps in a week. If anything, it gives me a lot of practice managing my heat related migraines.

The road to 70.3

Sometime last year, Megan and I thought we would be smart and adventurous and sign up for our first 70.3. The jury is still out on whether or not this was actually a smart idea or not.

So anyway, in September we’ll be heading south to Augusta, Georgia for the Ironman Augusta 70.3. Woohoo?

About 10 months ago I hired an awesome coach to help think smarter and train better when it comes to triathlon. She will also be crucial in helping me get across that finish in September.

So far training hasn’t gotten to out of control, but I can confidently say that this is not lasting long. We’ve got Rev3 Williamsburg coming up in a month and then we’ve got 9 weeks to ramp up for Augusta.

The road to 70.3 starts now and I sure hope I am ready for the ride.

Hello Again

Sometimes you spend a few years with a blog you greatly enjoyed writing and then the person who hosted it for you decided they wanted nothing to do with you anymore and dismantled it against your wishes. Well, that’s neither here nor there any more and I took things into my own hands and started this lovely little site. Okay, so it’s been sitting here blank for longer than I wish to admit to but now I’m back and ready to write!

So what are we going to write this time around? To be honest, I’m not sure. I have a lot going on this year and want to use this blog to hold me accountable (yeah, no more skipping workouts for me!). I also want to write about what’s on my mind, not that any of you will read or care. Hell, if I’m the only one that ever reads this blog, I am okay with that as well.

So here we go again.
