Oh man it feels good to get some quality work in. I am looking forward to this weekend. No musculoskeletal issues to report for the first time in a month. Here is how the week went.
Tuesday-Recovery run of 3 miles in 29:00 or so. Slow and easy pace, concentrated on form and having fun. Softball at night, no problems.
Wednesday-Bike/hills. I was shooting for 25 miles but it got very dark and very windy. I only got 19 in. POUNDED on some hills. I went back to the perfect hill and rode that baby 5 times, in a bigger gear than what is comfortable and progressively went a longer distance. I felt great.
Thursday (today)-Run. Had a strong 5 miles run tonight. Beautiful weather, around 78 degrees. I could have gone a lot longer. No pain, no fatigue, and lots of fun. My ipod even died mid run and I wasnt fazed. Been a long time since I have had a run worth posting mile splits so here they are: 9:26, 9:38, 9:24, 9:30, and 9:24. Avg pace of 9:29 in 47:25. Not my fastest or anything but feels like I getting back on the score board. The last 2 miles are up hill and I even attacked a bit. I tried not to go way too hard but I really wanted to. I am gonna ease into it.
Friday-long swim, saturday long run of 8 miles, and sunday a long ride of 40ish. I cant wait.
