Training Goals – 5/17/10 – 5/23/10

You guys – last week was pretty successful (at least compared to my usual track record lately).

Training Goals: 5/10 – 5/16

Monday: Rest (originally, I’d planned to make up yesterday missed run today – but had forgotten that I already had plans tonight. BOO!) – SUCCESS! I rested & drank beer at Fred Fest like a champ!

Tuesday: Run (with the Ambitious One!) – SUCCESS! The tempo run also included extraordinaire Jen!

Wednesday: Triple Day! Morning spin class + post-spin brick run (I am graduating to the 60 minute spin class), evening Open Water Swim (brrr…..) with the Ambitious One!  – SUCCESS! Spin class didn’t kill me. I ran a mile after spinning. There was an OWS. More on that later.

Thursday: Swim + self-defense class w/ JenSUCCESS! I swam a quick 1500 after work & then met Jen for our second self-defense class.

Friday: Weights + Yoga – half SUCCESS! I went to a GREAT yoga class (at Yoga Shala) and then did homework & gardened. Then, I rode my bike (approx 9 miles) to Roots!

Saturday: Bike – my one & only FAIL! I’d intended to do a long ride, but ended up doing construction & gardening instead.

Sunday: Run – 4 miles. – SUCCESS! I ran 4 miles on Leif Erikson in about 42 minutes. YAY! Later, I rode my bike to & from the NE Sunday Parkways (11 miles total).

The only things I didn’t do were (1) weight lifting (but I painted for four hours, so my right arm got a workout) and (2) long ride (I’m not sure that three short rides count).

Training Goals: 5/17 – 5/23

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: Run + Yoga (with the Ambitious One and Jen)

Wednesday: Triple Day! Morning spin class + post-spin brick run (I am graduating to the 60 minute spin class), evening Open Water Swim (brrr…..) with the Ambitious One! I am hoping for a better experience this week

Thursday: Swim + self-defense class w/ Jen

Friday: Weights + Yoga

Saturday: Run – 5 miles

Sunday: Hagg Lake OWS + Hilly Hagg Lake Bike

    Wow! I couldn’t imagine doing all of that, and work full-time, and have a husband and a house/garden, and a social life. Not without passing out at least once from exhaustion. You’re amazing!

    I know what a brick run is, but I’ve always wondered — why do they call it a brick?

      I have no idea how the term originated, and when I Googled it, there seems to be no real consensus, either. It just is. 🙂
