Training week Wrap up….

So Wow. This week in training. 40 running miles. 87 total miles. The 40 mile week is my first 40 mile week  in at least 20 weeks, so I guess I am supposed to be tired. I Am indeed. TIRED. My legs feel solid and strong, but my pace is really disappointing.  I’m running so …

Lesson learned…(again)

So today on the docket was a medium sized Brick workout. Bike an hour run 6 miles. I awoke at 4 am and stumbled/shuffled around.  Made an executive decision to crawl back to the bed.  Slept til 6:30 am. Felt better. The yasso workout is so tough that it followed me into the next day. …

Yassos

I have not been very faithful about posting for a bit now.  I have been entirely full up of “life”  on time, which I think is a great thing.  I’m frankly amazed at myself that since the end of August and beginning of September, I’ve managed to go to Nigeria, interview for a new job …

Long run gone wrong….ish

So… “long run” of a rest week today.  5 miles. I again did not sleep well last night.  That really affects everything. Plus I ate junk food yesterday so I was fueled by…errrr…. Junk. SO I started out jogging along, and hit the hill then I noted some yellow police tape up.  BIG tree down …

New experiences day.

Today I had on the schedule a 5K.  It’s a race I love. I didn’t do it. I had to practice with my open water relay team the Kayak thing. We are doing this awesome swim. As a relay, which means after about 2 miles each we have to get into the kayak from the …

Could it be?could it be?

That my legs have recovered from the torture I gave them recently. Seriously all that travel kind of screwed things up.  I really wonder exactly how Professional runners and other athletes deal with all the jet lag of travel before the big meets in Dubai etc.  I did not deal well with it at all. …

Recovery Miles.

Wow.  So Sunday I did my ever so slow 12 miler and then spent the rest of the day kind of recovering.  I woke up a few times in the night and found moving about to be challenging. I knew I had 2 measly miles on the schedule.  I debated doing them in the pool…doing …

Sunday Long run.

Whew.  Long run. I had 12 miles on the docket.  Now. 12 is kind of a mid distance and it isn’t that long. My issue was that I’ve kinda been slacking on the long run. The last Sunday I was on an airplane, so no long run. The previous sunday I was supposed to be …

Wow I’m really quite tired

So I did Swim/run/swim/run on tuesday. Wednesday I ran 4 miles.  It did not go super well.  To start with my garmin died mid run. Luckily it stopped working at mile 2.6 in a 4 mile run. It was an out and back.  So to do the correct distance, all I had to do was …

Swim, Run, Swim, Run….

Back in the USA. I got home yesterday.  As is expected and is only natural, I received an email last night with the rest of the weeks workouts. I was asleep.  And decided after the alarm went off at 5, that I was tired. So around 7, I saw the email, and was like OHHHH. …
