So, today's blog will be short and just wanted to update you guys with the way that my training is going. I know that I announced a while back that I was working with a coach and I still am working with that same coach. As I said before, I'm so impressed with this coaching staff and I don't know if I could go back to planning my own. haha! I'm kidding but it's definitely a luxury that I enjoy having. Right now, I'm really focusing on running as we are going into Boston and that is the primary concern.
George (my running buddy) signed up for the Ironman NC as well so he is kicking up the tri training and asking me to come with him on bike rides. We are supposed to ride 22 miles today through a super hilly course, but it's supposed to pour the rain so I'm not sure that's going to happen. We shall see. Nevertheless, this is what the week has looked like. I didn't take a rest day last week just because of the way that things panned out.
Last Saturday-1 hour ride (15 miles) + 8 mile run
Sunday-15 mile run (completed a 50 mile week)
Monday-3000m swim + Upper Body workout
My coach actually wants me to do a powerlifting meet (ha!). We will see about that. My primary focus is obviously endurance but it would be cool to see what I could do while also training for my endurance events!
This entire week we are going easy because of my hamstring. I'm not injured at all, but I can just feel it hurting and I don't want to do a lot of speed work as I feel it might "pop" and that is the LAST thing that I want.
Tuesday-easy 8 miles
Wednesday- easy 6 miles + Lower Body (pulled 175 for 8 so that was fun and the men at the Y look at me like I'm insane LOL)
Thursday-6 miles tempo on the treadmill + Upper Body
Today- 4 mile easy + Lower Body + 22 mile bike (I'm not sure this is going to happen but I'll do an hour on the trainer if not)
Saturday-15 mile run (Completes a 40 mile week)
There ya have it! I love to train! Seriously, LOVE LOVE! I look forward to it every day.
Also, my macro class went so great last night and I love having people into my home to teach about all of this. I'm hoping to start some up in the town for running as well, and how to get faster. I think that would be fun.
Lastly, I WAS UP UNTIL 1AM LAST NIGHT WATCHING THIS CRAZY "How to Make a Murderer" on Netflix. I cannot deal with this. I need to sleep and I need to finish this so I can get my life back. HAHAHA! SO CRAZY!
