I was not happy about missing my long run and longish ride and stewed about it far too long. During Monday's spin, I finally came to the conclusion that solely focusing on a week by week, Monday to Sunday time period for my training is absurd. Sure it's easy to make these training recap posts based on a week- but in reality my body doesn't care if the long run I missed Sunday gets pushed to Monday instead. My weekly training will look whack, but the workouts are still there and contributing to my fitness. I felt much better after coming to that conclusion although it seems obvious now.
Tuesday: 10 mile cycle, 2 mile run brick day!
Wednesday: 8 mile run- 8x400's
Thursday: 15 mile cycle
Friday: 10 mile run on the treadmill
Saturday: 4 miles with fartlek last 2 miles
Sunday: REST- knee hurt
Total: 5:02:22 for 49 miles
Run: 3:12:32 for 24 miles
Cycle: 1:49:50 for 25 miles
CB was very lovey this week- he missed his daddy a lot and was so happy to see him on Friday.
Saturday was also the Uppers and Downers beer fest- all of the beers had coffee in them. It was really good once again and was so fun to spend time with friends.
With 8 more weeks until Carmel, I've also been retooling my running speed work so that it is more in line with my goals for that race. I will also revisit my usual weekly workouts and either add a medium distance run to the day I have an hour spin (yay double!) or eliminate the spin until after Carmel. I'll also start going back to the pool again this week. Hopefully. Maybe. Probably.
