On Wednesday, I tried intervals on the treadmill again. It was a tough workout, as always, and probably a big mistake. My right leg was screaming at me afterwards. Drat.
Thursday was supposed to be a swim/upper body strength day before work. However, I really hadn't slept well that night and didn't feel like getting up at 5:15. So I slept in instead. I didn't want to totally blow off my workout, so I took my swim stuff with me hoping to try swimming at lunch time. It's okay as a plan B. I got in a 1200 yd swim. I returned to work with wet hair and still smelling like chlorine (no time for a shower or drying my hair). Luckily, I didn't have to work *with* anyone in the afternoon so it was all good.
Friday was my cycle day with Cindy. We met up at the trailhead at lunch time. The weather was beautiful. We shared lots of laughter along the way. Time sure flies when you're having fun. When it was all said and done, I had a little over 43 miles on my bike computer. Other than hitting the 'wall' at about mile 35, it was a perfect cycle day for me. But those last 8 miles were a real struggle. I've got three short weeks to figure out how to get from 43 to 65. I think that taking more frequent rest/stretch breaks will probably go a long way toward getting me there.
My schedule says that today is a long run day, but I think I'm going to skip it or possibly try a short run. I really need to let my right leg heal up.
Tomorrow I plan on showing up at the gym right when they open so that I can swim before church. We've got plans all afternoon, so if I don't get the swim in, it will probably be nada for me. Oh, and I'll also be tracking Wes while he's doing his first 70.3 in Orlando as well as checking Javamom's blog for an update on how her first Oly went.
Whatever you're doing this weekend, enjoy it!!
