Workout Notes Week Ending April 8
Monday through Thursday I was really sore from Sunday's Tri. Instead of doing intervals on Monday, I did a much lighter workout. My swimming workouts did not feel very strong either, although I got in lots of good work. I had been hoping to do a long bike ride during the three day weekend. Sadly it got REALLY cold and WINDY. In spite of that I sucked it up and biked on both Friday and Saturday. I did not go very as far, I just did my 30 mile loop both days. This loop goes due north for the first 13 miles and that just happenned to be straight into the cold wind. Saturday I rode solo. It was not as cold as Sunday but the wind was stronger, as you can see from the stats below. Sunday I rode with Terry, and it was 10 degrees colder and the wind, while strong, was still lighter than Saturday. Anyway it was nice to ride two days instead of one. Today I had a strong long run. The legs felt great after three days of no - running! I ran the loop in exactly the same time (86 min) as two weeks ago, with the same ave and max HR (146/156) and the same recovery (49 point drop in 2 min). Wow!
