It finally happened…..
My Coach Broke ME.
Whew. I have not been posting mostly due to travel and the monotony of many of my workouts, but Oh WOW, Oh Wow.
This whole week has been tough.
Monday night I took the red-eye from CA to Fl. It was a very good flight, much more comfortable than the one out, so no complaints.
I landed tuesday to the joy of a Transition Tuesday. Swam 1500, ran 2 miles swam 500 and ran 1 more mile. It was to say the least, difficult. I did it though.
Slept REALLY well on Tuesday and Wednesday had a pretty good workout. In the morning I did a 5 mile tempo run. It wasn’t a Total ALL out TEMPO, as I was still feeling kind of exhausted, but it went pretty well. In the afternoon, I lifted for 45 minutes. I am not used to being given a time limit on workouts, so I tried real hard to focus. I managed to get in some good super setting.
I did all the crazy named exercises..like velociraptors.
At the end of the workout, I had a moment of tired…and almost bust out into tears. So tired.
Thursday…I did a Brick..Spin and run. It went great. On Thursday evening I had a tough tough massage.
Yeah. I felt better after but also very very sore. My adductors have born the brunt of my jet setting. My therapist and I finally decided that I might have strained both a bit during the weekend etc.
So today…I swam, for an hour straight. Then I had a short 3 miler. Well. About the 3 miler. I got out of the pool and felt exhausted. I got dressed and started the run. It felt really BAD. I have not had so much of an issue going in years. I finished the 3 but mostly walked and ran a bit….so Kudos to my coach….He’s finally broken me…though…I have a feeling… tomorrow will be a different story. It’s not quite Harvest time, but I love this song, so lets give it a listen!
