Last big push before race week!
Monday – Scheduled rest day. I did a 20 minute yoga video to try to stretch a bit better. I think it helped. I’m clearly not very flexible.
Tuesday – Treadmill hills. 6 half mile repeats on an 8% incline. Hills kick my ass, so it’s rare that I make it through this workout. But I was determined to push through, so I dropped my speed significantly and just powered through. And I made it! It wasn’t fast, but I got it done and that’s what counts. Now to never find a race with 3 miles of 8% incline.
Wednesday – Brick workout. Hour on the trainer followed by a one mile run. Easy peasy.
Thursday – Team Fight Swim. I’m really working on my bilateral breathing. Still not great at it, but I’m getting there. I think added flexibility will help.
Friday – Rest Day
Saturday – The best laid plans…
Sunday – 21 mile bike ride. My plan called for 100 minutes, so I did the Princeton Sports ride with some distance tacked on with Kristin. Did 21 miles in 1:43. I was clearly not flying through this ride, but there were some decent hills, so I’m pleased with the workout.
