Update on Week 1 and Week 2

Monday, January 13, 2014

First the Update from Week One:

Monday: Cycle or Swim - Cycle is 10 minutes Easy, 10 minutes Tempo, 10 minutes Easy. I may be swimming due to the fact I will have my first TRI this weekend and I have yet to get wet. I am not too worried as it is only 100m swim. Strength Training followed by a cool down workout. Also before hitting the sack I will do my Flexibility for Runners. DONE!!

Tuesday: 8 x 400 pace (2:09 - 2:19) followed by a cool down routine and Flexibility DVD. DONE!!

Wednesday: Cycle 10 minutes EASY 3x(2 minutes HARD + 2 minutes EASY) 10 minutes EASY
Strength Training followed by cool down routine and the Flexibility DVD. I also have a root canal this day. I didn't my cycling workout done before my root canal and didn't feel good enough later in the mouth ached.

Thursday: 2 miles EASY; 2 miles @ (9:34-10:12); 2 miles EASY. Cool Down Routine. Work the Disney expo with POLAR. Flexibility DVD. FAIL I didn't run before heading to the expo. I had a great day working with a great friend.

Friday: Strength Training followed by Flexibility DVD. FAIL Didn't workout - tired from being on my feet all day.

Saturday: Flexibility DVD - skipped and drove to Naples.

Sunday: Naples Open Tri (100m swim, 3 mile bike, 1 mile run) + 7 miles @(11:12 - 11:57) . I ran 3.23 miles before my tri. I cut it short, due to the water conditions. I completed the tri in 30:59. I was 26/61 overall; 8th woman overall, and 1st in my age group out of 6.

Overall I would give myself a 6/10 for this week.
