In the crazy shuffle of life, I never updated what I had accomplished in eek 3 of IMLP training, so I’ll include that this week along with week 4.
Week 3 –
This week was in the thick of my sickness so scheduled workouts did not happen as planned.
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – 90 min bike am, 45 min strength pm
Wednesday – 6.25 mile tempo run after work, 2650 yrd swim planned and aborted due to coughing. Turns out it’s not easy to swim and cough.
Thursday – 90 min bike am, 45 min strength pm
Friday – 150 min bike. I moved my plan around to do this and impact my kiddo less. We watched some Pirates of the Caribbean together while I rode the miles.
Saturday – 2650 yrd swim am, 6 mile hill run aborted again due to feeling lousy.
Sunday – 3000 yrd swim aborted, 10 mile run completed.
Totals for week 3… the week of the sick:
Swimming – 2650 yrds
Biking – 90.5 miles
Running – 16.25 miles
Total Time: 10:37
Week 4 –
This was a better week and I was finally feeling better. Just so happens that it was also a recovery week.
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – 60 min bike am
Wednesday – 4.5 mile recovery run, 60 min bike … I moved the bike here to better fit my schedule.
Thursday – Rest Day …. I barely know what to do when there are TWO rest days in one week.
Friday – 4.5 mile recovery run, aborted swim
Saturday – 90 min bike, 2400 yrd mixed swim
Sunday – 6.2 mile run, 1 hour Iron Barre class for strength training
Totals for week 4… my first “recovery” week:
Swimming – 24000 yrds
Biking – 55 miles
Running – 14.5 miles
Total Time: 7:45
Between being sick and then having a recovery week, I was feeling a little behind the game. After receiving my plan for this coming week, I know that I need today’s rest day. Looks like my coach has plans to go big or go home for week 5. So, I say bring it. I’m all rested up!
Time to put the work in!
