Blogging about my workouts (and food, to a lesser extent these days) keeps me accountable. I’ve liked the recaps of a previous week of training some bloggers have been doing, and I like Jess’ Say It, Do It, posting her planned workouts for the upcoming week, so I’m going to give it a try to keep me accountable and give you a look at my marathon training (and find more people to work out with. If you want to do any of these workouts or part of them with me, please let me know.)
Sunday: 17-mile bike ride
Monday: I didn’t blog about it, but I did a 30-minute swim workout
Wednesday: I ended up taking a rest day because I screwed around all day and lost track of time
Thursday: 6-mile run
Friday: tri practice: 6.5-mile bike ride + 1 mile run
Saturday: NYRR Sprint Tri! (400m swim, 10.5 mile bike, 3.1 mile run)
Sunday: yoga + 2-mile shakeout run
Total: 33.5 miles biking, 19.1 miles running (This is a little low for a marathon training week, but I did a sprint tri. So there’s that.)
Monday: 6 mile run (4x strides) <– currently waiting for my coach to explain strides to me.
Tuesday: 6 mile run (4x strides)
Wednesday: 55 minutes XT (I’m planning swimming–I started really enjoying it!)
Thursday: 6 mile run (4x strides)
Friday: probably a rest/yoga day
Saturday: 13 miles. Gulp.
Sunday: probably a little shake-out rude
The wildcard is still strength training. I’m supposed to do it three times a week, and he’s given me a specific strength training routine, but doing it alone in the gym still makes me feel like the dumb girl who has no idea what she’s doing in a weight room–so I will probably try to work two strength classes in.
And if you really don’t care about my workouts…
…do you like Bailey’s summer cut? He looks so little without all his fluff!
What workouts do you have planned this week?
