Saturday 29.5 miles bike/1:59:26/14.7 MPH- group ride to top of Caleveras Rd.
+ run 3.0 miles/21:57/7:19 average pace- flew on my run for no particular reason. I just went out at a good pace and was surprised at the first mile split. So I kept it going- it got hard but I was really happy with my time.
Sunday run 8.0 miles/1:13:55/9:15 average pace- skipped my open water swim again, but decided to get in a long run instead. I ran on the Stevens Creek trail down by my brother's house. Sister-in-law is doing good, by the way! She's glad to be home from the hospital and to start healing up. :)
TOTALS for last week: 19 miles Run, 71.1 miles Bike, 4450 Swim
total training time: 9 hrs 15 minutes (recovery week)
Monday swim 2400 y/55:30- morning Master's class
Monday run 6.0 miles/53:01/8:50 average pace- after swim class and a bagel breakfast we drove to the Hayward Regional Shoreline for a run along the bay. It was cool and cloudy- perfect running weather.
So in addition to all that training stuff, we did lots of fun stuff: bowling, watched hockey, I hung out with my brother and sister-in-law, went to a bbq party, and enjoyed some adult beverages. I also slept a LOT (due to the training and partially to the adult beverage enjoyment). I slept for about 2 hours Saturday afternoon after my brick workout, and I slept for about 2 hours yesterday after getting home from the bbq. That's in addition to sleeping like a rock for 8-10 hours every night.
Well this is my 499th blog post, and I think I might make some changes to my posting format or something starting with the big 5-0-0. To be honest, I feel like my blog is getting boring. :( All it is is training updates, which is of course the whole purpose of the blog, but it's just so redundant. I don't know what I'll do but I'd like to switch things up a little. Nothing major. Any ideas?
