Wow – what a week! I did all my workouts…quite an accomplishment for me . I am getting into a routine, but still need to figure out how to get all the double workouts in.
I got to admit, I am so excited for the Ironman. I love this stuff..I love the the challenge. Here is my workouts for week 35:
Monday – Day Off
Tuesday – 5:30 AM run. My body is getting used to waking up at 5 – not as tough to get up anymore. Only taken like 5 or 6 months to get used to…yikes.
Wednesday – 5:30 AM swim. I did 2050 yds today in 45 minutes.
2:30 PM – strength for 30 mins. My plan for strength training is to get it done during the day at home. I have weights at home and I work at home. Often times I find myself not taking breaks from work during the day, but if I put a 30 minute break on my calendar, I will take the time to lift weights. The meeting notifications make me feel guilty if I don’t do it!! Working great so far.
Thursday – 5:30 AM – 45 mins on the bike trainer.
5:30 PM – 45 min run once my husband got home from work. Went around the neighborhood 2X…nice little trail run.
Friday – 5:30 AM – swim 2300 yds. That afternoon I was supposed to ride the trainer for 30 mins…but I literally forgot to do it. I remembered about 8 PM and was too tired….so I decided I had to get it in – I would get up early on Saturday.
Saturday – 4:30 AM – yes, that is right – 4:30 AM. I rode the trainer for 30 mins then did a 7 mile run! I was so proud of myself for getting up early and getting it all in – even the trainer ride I missed on Friday. I had baseball at 9 and soccer at 11, and soccer pizza party at 12:30, so it was a busy day. Early morning was the only time to get it done. The run felt great, even after riding the trainer. I just love to run .
Sunday – I also forgot to do strength training on Friday. So I did 30 mins of strength on Sunday.
Also, I rode my bike outside for the first time in 2.5 years! It was a big accomplishment for me, even if it was only for about 30 mins.
