Monday - 6 miles of running in 52 minutes
Tuesday - 1,900 yards (38 laps) of swimming in about 40 minutes. First 800 was done in 12-13 minutes! I felt better at swimming, and was going to do more until I got kicked out of the pool for water aerobics.
Wednesday - I went trail running! Remember how I wanted to trail run this summer, and I revealed my next big race of the Pt. Defiance Trail Run (distance to be determined)?! The trail running was HOT, but still lovely. And 6 miles were pumped out in just a little over an hour.
It seriously doesn't get much better than this.
Thursday - I did a BRICK workout! Remember how my 2nd summer goal was to do a TRIATHLON?! Well whoa, look at me, using triathlon terminology and all that. That's right, a BRICK workout, my friends, is a bike workout followed by running. But really, I would imagine it's doing any two activities back-to-back. Like when I eat ice cream and then I eat some sour patch kids. I'd imagine it's exactly like that. I biked 15.4 miles in an hour and then ran 3.5 miles.
Did you know it's kind of hard to run after you've been biking? I bet you did. But if you didn't, uh, it is. Your legs feel all weird and heavy like you're running through 4 feet of water. You're running in slow motion despite your best efforts. It's unexpected.
Friday - TGIF so hangin' (walkin' 3 miles) with Mr. Cooper
Saturday - 8 miles of hiking Mt. Si! About 3 of these miles were running downhill. I meant to run more on Saturday but the hike was much more difficult than expected and my legs were THRASHED by the end.
Sunday - About 5 miles of running around (1 mile probably actually running) cheering at the Lake Stevens Half Ironman! Again, I intended to do a long run but my quads (especially my right one) are so incredibly sore from the hike. Came home and walked with Cooper another 1+ miles.
And that was my week! I feel much better about this week than last week. I swam, biked, hiked, and ran. I ran trails and I did a brick workout. I sat on the couch much less than last week! SUCCESS! Although I still haven't done a long run since the marathon, and that's bad. Especially with RAGNAR coming up next weekend! So exciting!
Total running miles = 20.
How was your week? What did you do this weekend?
