Training last week was pretty sparse, thanks to that half ironman I had to recover from. I was feeling more or less OK by Wednesday, and was excited to get back to swimming because the Chesapeake Bay swim is in 5.5 weeks.
Ohhhhhhhhhh…..yeah…4.4 miles of swimming, I guess I should train for that?
My coach promises me several 90-120 minute swims on my schedule for the next month. I can’t wait.
Monday: 2800 meters of very easy recovery swimming.
Tuesday: Rest day.
Wednesday: 5 miles of easy running with no watch. My legs felt a little tired, but not terrible.
Thursday: 4500 yards of swimming with DCRP Masters in the evening. Some of this was at faster paces (1:15-1:17/100 yards), but a good deal of it was easier per the workout instructions.
Friday: An hour of easy (144W) spinning on the bike trainer.
Saturday: 8.89 miles of running (9:02 pace) on Beach Drive early in the morning.
Sunday: Rest day (yes, again. 70.3 miles is far.)
