Monday 4.0 miles/33:20/8:20 average pace
Zach and I drove up to Lake Chabot for a hilly run around the lake. We pushed the pace from the start and my the second mile I was breathing really hard. Specifically, I was wheezing. Ugh! I have this problem occasionally, like in the Half marathon last week, and it's starting to bother me. Please check out this LINK to a discussion on the topic on the Runango Running Forum. If you don't read it, here's the summary: I asked if it is normal to wheeze sometimes, and several people responded saying I should check with a doctor because no, that is not normal. Several people had this problem and now use an inhaler and have no breathing issues. It's a relief to know I could be wheeze-free sometime! I'm going to make an appointment and I'll keep you updated.
Tuesday morning: Swim 1000 m. in 20:53 !!! This is a PR time for me by over a minutes. Sweeeet. I think swimming in the lake has made me a stronger swimmer! Even though I feel like I'm flailing around when I'm in the lake... it makes the pool seem easy as pie! Is that a saying? I think it is.
Tuesday evening: Bike 8.0 miles/31:38/15.2 MPH We cranked out this ride after work then did a core/abs workout at home after. I was not too sore after this ride like last time, but I decided I won't ride again till Saturday (was going to go tonight- Thursday).
Wednesday 6.0 miles/53:52/8:59 average pace
I made sure to set an easy pace since I've been pushing it every time I run lately, and that's getting old! We ran a new route and got kinda lost, but it was a fun adventure.
Thursday morning: Swim 500 m in about 10 minutes (forgot my watch). Didn't have time for more but I did manage to sit in the hot tub for 10 minutes. :D Don't question my logic!!
I'm taking this evening off to do stuff around the house, but then I'm cramming a few hard workouts into Friday and Saturday because we are leaving early Sunday morning for VEGAS!! :) We got a sweet deal on plane tickets ($29 one-way on Southwest!) and a good rate at New York New York hotel, so we're going Sun-Tues. Our 4th wedding anniversary is Wednesday August 1st, so we're celebrating in style. :)
