My intentions were to write and post this yesterday morning but instead I made Colin a bomb.com breakfast! It WAS Father’s Day after all. 🙂
Monday- I was dying to go running. My butt/back was feeling better and I wanted to test out my new shoes on the road. I got home and all my gadgets were dead!!! So I plugged everything in (phone, watch, and headphones) and got on my bike. I did a 35 minute ride then went out and ran a mile when everything was charged. Colin did a 2,800 yard swim plus an hour ride.
Tuesday- I went to the pool to do a swim test. I warmed up, did a few drills and then swam 500 yards for time. I used Colin’s watch so I would be able to see my lap slips. Followed that up with a cool down for 1200 total yards. Colin did a 50 minute run test so he warmed up on the treadmill then did the test and cool down outside.
Wednesday- I attempted to do speed work in the afternoon. I didn’t do the workout I wanted to do bit I ended up doing a 1 mile warm up, then at 5k pace: 400, 600, 400, 600, 200, all with 400 yards recovery in between, then just a cool down to get back to the house. Total of 4 miles averaging 8:2x (I can’t remember exactly) Colin did a 2,750 swim with a short brick workout.
Thursday- Colin and I did abs together and then I got on the trainer. I did a 5 minute easy spinning warm up then did 10 x 2min hard, 1 min easy with a 5 minute cool down for a total of 40 minutes. Colin also did a 2 hour ride with a friend that evening.
Friday- Colin and I had a swim date during lunch time on Friday. I did 5 x 200 yards and my goal was to come in around 3:50-3:55 on all of them. Colin got there before me and did a 2,600 yard workout plus drills. I was going to do more but we cut it short so we could go have a lunch date before getting Brice. 🙂
Saturday- I needed to go run and unfortunately the only time I had to run was around 2 pm. I thought about getting on the treadmill but our garage was just as hot as it was outside. I did 4 miles at: 8:32, 8:32, 8:32, & 8:30 very consistent! It was tough but I’m glad I did it. Before I left for my run Colin looked at me and said “ohhh, you’re colorful.” If you can’t decide on which color to wear, just wear them all! Colin did a LONG 70 mile ride followed up with a short run early in the morning.
Sunday- My plan was to do an easy 30 minute recovery spin but we washed our bikes instead. I did get in a very good core workout though! Colin had a long run to follow up on his long bike the day before.
What is your favorite type of run to do: Speed work, tempo, long/easy or other?
Would you rather go for a run, go swimming, or cycle?
