Just a quick mid-week update here. I had such a good day today I couldn't wait to post.
45 minutes trainer
6.0 miles/48:20/8:03 average pace
My schedule called for 5 miles with 3 @ Tempo pace. Since I'd cut Monday's run a mile short I added it onto today's run. I also decided to do an extra Tempo mile cause I was totally feeling it. After a very slow 1.5 mile warm up, my 4 LT splits were:
Yay! That third mile was a little fast and I had to stop because I had a side cramp, but otherwise I felt really strong.
Then I came home and did my pushups- I'm on Day 2 of Week 2 (I'm doing each week twice). The workout called for sets of 12, 10, 9, 9, then a final set where you max out. I did 20!! That's a PR by 3 over Friday's late night showdown. Aww yea!
The rest of the week is going to be all about swimming since I missed Tuesday's swim. I will go both tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday and try to do around 2000 yards each time if I have time. I'm also cycling tomorrow (outside if it's not raining) and running Friday. Then Saturday Zach and I are going to do a long run with hopefully some fast miles thrown in. We'll see.
In Biggest Loser news, it was a great episode and I wasn't too sorry to see Blaine go home. I was, however, pretty annoyed by his little "where are they now" segment at the end where he claimed to be training for an Ironman but got the distances completely wrong. He said "The Ironman is over a 1.5 mile swim, 80 miles bike, and a half marathon." What?? I mean, good for him, but he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. Pretty funny.
