Work has kept me very busy this week. I spent a couple days doing interviews, and I am so very glad that I don’t have to do them on a regular basis. On top of that, I have a big project with a looming deadline that keeps getting interrupted by more pressing issues. It is like one step forward, two steps back. I guess I can be glad that this week has been an easy week in my training schedule.
Monday was technically a rest day, but I swam anyways. I still had sore arms and abs from the circuit workout I did over the weekend, and this workout was more or less a way for me to stretch out the muscles. I did a continuous 2500 yards pulling on and off each 250 yards. I felt a lot better after the workout than I did before.
Tuesday, I took completely off. It was very nice. I wanted to jump on the trainer, but I was exhausted and decided to take it easy.
Wednesday, I did a swim and a run, but took both very easy.
Which brings us to today. I woke up early and got a bit of work done right off the bat. After that, I took some time to ride the trainer. I did 2 hours while watching Chuck on the DVR. I worked on riding in the aero position by alternating from the hoods to the aero bars every 5 minutes. I followed up the ride with a 4 mile run this afternoon. The run was pretty mundane, but the best part was that I got to wear shorts! The temperature has been in the upper 30s this week, so I decided to take advantage of the veritable heat wave.
As for the rest of the week, I have a 6 mile run scheduled for tomorrow. I may squeeze in a bike ride, but that is still up in the air.
This weekend, I am hoping to spend some time firming up a training schedule for my summer race schedule. The start date of triathlon training is rapidly approaching, and I need to get some things down on paper.
