Wednesday Workout Recap

Last week was the last big push before this weekend’s race.  I’m not going to lie.  It hurt.

Monday – Rest Day.  Okay, this one didn’t hurt.

Tuesday – Treadmill hill repeats.  3 one mile hills.  Awesome.  Actually, this workout went better than I expected. I had to knock the speed WAY down, so I would have been beating no one, but I managed to rock it out while still keeping my heart rate down, and for me, that’s the biggest challenge when it comes to hills.

Wednesday – An hour on the bike trainer.  I love trainer workouts and am looking forward to a winter on the trainer.  I can definitely tell that I’m getting stronger.  The puddle of sweat is less than awesome though.

Thursday – Team Fight Swim.  As per usual, I didn’t want to go, went, and had a blast.  We did sprints and I was sore for two days.  Which means that I needed those sprints.  I’m not much of a sprinter, but I can only believe that it makes me faster.

Friday – Rest day.  I’m good at these.

Saturday – Ten freaking miles on the treadmill.  I was exhausted today and wasn’t sure I could make it through all ten miles, so I decided to get on the mill and do what I could.  And I ended up rocking out all ten miles.  They weren’t the prettiest, but I got them done.

Sunday – Went to the Billy Joel concert last night and it was AWESOME.  But I didn’t get home til 2 am.  So getting up at 7 to bike with the group didn’t happen.  But I got on the trainer and put in the 1:40 that Coach wanted me to do.  Then I took a nap.

I’ve been really struggling with my training lately.  I wondered if it was overtraining, but I think it’s just life.  I’m not getting enough sleep through my own fault and I’ve also been dealing with some huge projects at work.  Thankfully, I’m not putting in a significant amount of extra time at the office, but I’ve been going pretty much full speed while I’m there.  I successfully hit three major deadlines, so I’m hoping in the next month or so, things ease up a tiny bit.  We’ve been saying this for the past year, so I don’t have much hope, but a girl can dream.
