This was the last Friday of the month, so I swam in a different lane with some different lane mates. As a result, I pretty much did the workout on my own while my lane mates did whatever they chose to do. I needed just a little extra time at the end to finish the 200m cooldown that brought to the workout total of 2250m. I did a fair amount of all four strokes during the course of the workout.
I was up very early this morning. I worked for a couple of hours before the swim workout. I did have an inkling to just keep working and do a different workout later in the day. But, I decided it would be better to get to the workout. As it turns out, the coach wasn't there today and I put together my own workout. I'm still glad that I completed the workout early in the day.
I knew that I didn't want to miss any more swim workouts and that I needed to make sure to get to the pool today. Since I had missed two weeks I decided to move back down one lane. I had a great workout today and was reminded once again how much I love getting up early and getting in my workout.
I got up early but ended up deciding to skip the swim workout. I went for a one hour run instead. I enjoyed the workout and ran the whole time.
I rode for about 1 hour. I did an out and back on the Bear Creek Trail heading east.
This was a different type of challenge for me this week riding six days in a row. I'm glad to have completed the challenge!
I rode for about 1:45. Morrison / C470 / Dinosaur Ridge / 93 / 40 / Rooney / Jewell
I gave Eli a ride to school and planned to pick him up at the end of the day. But, the weather didn't cooperate.
I am aiming for riding six times this week. I rode for about an hour on the Garrison route.
I wasn't able to get myself out the door fast enough, so I decided I would do a bike workout today. I rode on the Bear Creek Trail for about one hour. It felt quite cool when I was starting, but I think I overdressed a bit; I was pretty warm by the time I finished.
I didn't get to bed early enough last night and then I didn't get a good night's sleep. But, I still held my motivation fast and made it to the workout. As usual, I was totally glad that I did. I didn't have to deal with all the impossible breath work like last week's workout. This workout was somewhat easier on that account, but I definitely still worked hard.
