Thoughts from the Trainer

So I had an incredible week so far...
Monday - Long Run (postponed from Sunday) - 80 minutes but i needed to walk about 10 minutes since it was ungodly hot and humid and I did NOT bring enough water.

Tuesday - Bike for 1 hour and 30 min with 5x5 min Hill intervals and 5 min recovery (from the trainer) - AGAIN RIDICULOUSLY HOT - us in NJ were reaching record breaking temps

Wednesday - HOT - so decided to do the run in the morning and the swim in the pm. I did a run for 40 min that included12 x 1 min in Z5+ and it was in Z5+ and 1 min recovery. Then in the early evening I did a 2500 m swim workout
  • 350 wu
  • 8x25 drills (fingertip, r/l, dps)
  • 9x75 hard with 45 s rest
  • 8x25 all out sprints with 20 s rest
  • 8x25 kick
  • 350 cool down
Thursday - Brick - went on the group ride for 25 miles sockless - we averaged about 18 with some sick hills and then did about 3.4 miles in 28 minutes (awesome for me).

Friday - Swim about 2100 meters
  • 350 wu
  • 8x25 drills
  • 5x200 intervals with 20 s rest (moderately hard)
  • 4x50 sprints with 20 s rest
  • 350 c/d I had all these wonderful plans, I was meeting my friend Susan for a 50 mile loop and was very excited but the weather called for thunderstorms and rain so that was post-poned till next weekend and here I was stuck on the trainer for 3 mf hours...
  1. 8:30am - get up make myself cottage cheese and 1 slice of smart carb bread with pb and apple butter
