So, I have been extremely lax in the workout dept.
This week I made a pact to do *something* 5 days this week.
Monday, I did a tiny triathlon trial. I went to the Aquatic Fitness Center and swam 800 yards in 17:30. That is fast for me!
I was planning to do a swim/bike brick, and go for a ride around the lake. But I forgot my shoes! DOH! So I drove back home and got my shoes on and went for a ride up Mesa Road. I rode for 4 miles. My splits were 8/7/4/4. I got off my bike and went for a short 2 mi run. Man, were my calves tight!
During this trial I ran into some logistical issues. Like, hmmm, I can’t run wearing a swim suit. No support up top.
For that day, I changed into a jog bra and top, but that doesn’t seem practical for the race.
The pieces arrived on Thursday, but I haven’t had a chance to try them on yet.
On Tuesday night I went to the climbing gym with Tiffany. Totally burned out my forearms.
Wednesday morning I went for a 5k run in Monument Valley Park. It felt pretty good to just run again. I think I need to recalibrate my Nike+ iPod though – it clocked me as doing 3.21 mi in 30:53 – which is pretty much me at my fastest. I’m pretty sure my gait has shortened since the injury, which would certainly throw the calibration off to make me seem faster.
On Thursday, I went for a more leisurely 750 swim which took me about 20 minutes
So I did *something* physical each day this week. It’s a start.
