Training Goals 7/13 – 7/19

7/6 – 7/12 Recap

Monday: post-work swim, upper body strength (+abs & push-ups) – complete fail. I hurt so bad Monday from the half marathon, that I actually had to use elevators at work to go downstairs. I decided another rest day was in order.

Tuesday: easy 3 mile run- success! And a speedy 3 miles it was – 29:22; I felt GREAT!

Wednesday: 90 minute bike ride – fail – too lazy to ride 🙁

Thursday: easy 3 mile run (am); yoga (pm) – I ditched my AM run when I realized my schedule called for Friday & Saturday runs as well, and I can’t run 3 days in a row. I did go to yoga, and my yoga teacher tried to kill us all!

Friday: easy 6 mile trail run; swim – FAIL! stupid sick!

Saturday: 9 mile long run –almost success – 8 miles, and then a 13 mile bike.

Sunday: swim/bike brick – I did a hike/swim/run instead. It was pretty awesome. I also did 30 squats & 50 (5×10) incline push-ups against a fallen log while hanging out in the woods.

July 13 – July 19, 2009

I can’t believe July is almost half over. CRAZY! Also, SCARY!

Monday: Weights + Elliptical. – I’ll be doing my regular at home circuit. I usually add in some cardio at the end to round out to hour of exercise.

Tuesday: Either hill repeats or track. Can’t remember what I have on the master calendar. Am too lazy to go find it.

Wednesday: PM bike ride + short weight circuit.

Thursday: Optional AM 3 mile run + PM yoga

Friday: swim (1200+ yds) + trail run

Saturday: swim/bike brick – potentially an open water swim. I am scared,though, so maybe not!

Sunday: long run – 14 miles
