Week 37 Recap - week of 3/5/12

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.
Over all about 7:15 hours :)
