Woke up feeling much better than yesterday. Decided to run 11 miles, not 10. The path I run on is about 5.5 miles long (Springbrook Prairie). I waited as long as I could before I started running. I needed to be done by about 10:20 so I could pick up my son from church. My daughter and I went to service last night and it rocked. We had a guest speaker, and the previous worship leader came for a visit and played some amazing piano.
Started running about 8:15. Had a real good run. Took lots of Thermolyte tabs (at start, 4 and 7 miles). Had one gel at 5.5 miles, one at 9.5 miles, and drank all my Nuun (4--8 oz bottles). As usual, I started out slow, finished the last 4 miles at a 10 minute pace--really good for me on this long of a run. Total run time was 2:00:45, which included one bathroom stop, two stops for traffic, and one stop when Peanut called to let me know we were out of milk! I would have broke 2:00 if I didn't have that phone call! So, totals for the day: 11 miles, AHR 148, MHR 174, zones 3 & 4, 78-92%, 1200 calories.
Felt great after the run. My left calf is a little sore. If I don't warm up before I run, or bike or swim first, it does bother me on longer distances. I have to remember not to forget to do that!
Recovery week totals:
Swim: 5X for 8,650 meters
Bike: 3X for 107 miles
Run: 3X for 18.5 milesStrength: 1-60 minute session
Stretch/Core: 3-30 minute sessions
Total Time: 15:57:38 hours
Calories: 7,218 calories burned
Next week will be tricky. I have a 2-mile swim "race" on Saturday, and a spring tri on Sunday. I also have some "kid" stuff that will make me adjust my training a little. More on that as it occurs.
Hope everyone had a safe, relaxing and good weekend.
Until next time--God bless!
