Week 10 and 11 Training Updates

The past two weeks have been taper weeks, so not much exciting has been going on training wise. All of that taper madness led up to the half marathon I did in Asheville this past weekend (recap coming up shortly!). Here’s how my training went:

Week of March 2

Monday: 3×800 repeats with a warmup and cool down; I don’t know what it is about 800s, but I love them!

Tuesday: short swim with lots of drills

Wednesday: planned rest day

Thursday: tempo run on the dreadmill (my first treadmill run of 2015)

Friday: planned rest day

Saturday: short run around the lake near my house

Sunday: bike ride with members of Team Vive. We did Tubbs Mountain again – love this ride and the team!

 

Weekly totals

Swim: 700 yards

Bike: 29 miles

Run: 12 miles

 

Week of March 9

Monday: short tempo run where I got to test my new Vive jersey

P1000187

Love the Vive jersey!

 

Tuesday: planned rest day

Wednesday: short run where I got to test my new sunglasses

P1000195

The sunglasses do look like they’re pink, but they’re actually white with red details.

 

Thursday: planned rest day

Friday: planned rest day

Saturday: quick shakeout run with some strides

Sunday: half marathon!

 

Weekly total:

Run: 18.9 miles

 

With the half marathon over and done with, I can start to focus more on swimming and biking in preparation for Raleigh 70.3. There’s still hills to be run though – I’ve got the Altamont Mountain Goat relay (up and down Paris Mountain) coming up in April!

Is anyone else glad that spring seems to finally be here? Great weather for training outside!
