This week was right on the plan as far as volume goes. The bike got an extra hour over the run. Part of this is because I lost a run day on Thursday because of work. Saturday was an off day but I added a bike instead of run. Another part is that I am a stronger runner than cyclist right now. So, if it is a toss up I will jump on the bike! My race in April is an Oly Distance Tri (Even though I am doing a HIM Training program). The Olympic distance is a 10k run and I am confident this can be done in 46-48 minutes, even more confident after Sunday's 7:44 pace in the Half Mary. With that being said, bike and swim need the most work.
My legs were feeling very good this morning. Much more fresh than I figured they would be! Annie is not so lucky, she has been limping around in complete soreness for the last two days. I feel bad for her. She is using me as her servant so I don't feel that bad. This morning I got up early and jumped on the trainer and watched Jack Bauer on the Tivo. I actually felt bad for the Russian gangsters who were torturing Jack because we all knew they were going to die a very painful death - and they did. This morning was a solid hour. I did big ring intervals with every commercial, fun little game to battle the boredom of the trainer. After work I went to the pool and swam for about an hour. Worked on some drills and did 4x100 intervals and then some slow practice on my technique. Ended up doing 1500 meters (?? lost count a few times). Good day.
Okay, this next section is gross. You may remember the Nasty Blister that I got on my heel during the Texas Trail Run 50K. Well, it reappeared this weekend and I took a pic....yeahhhh!!!
I stuck the Garmin next to it so you could have an estimation of the size of the blister. The funny thing is that it does not hurt at all. If it wasn't so ugly you wouldn't even know it is there.
Not sure what to do about this reoccurring blister. I use body glide on the foot and it has now happened with two different types of shoes (trail and running)? Has to be something about my stride that is causing this? Anyway, thought I would share with my blog family!
Tomorrow is a scheduled 30 minute swim. That is all? Sometimes this training plan is too easy (-:
Thanks for Reading,
