2nd Building Block Wrap UP

12 Mar

Sunday was the final day in my 2nd building block in my Wildflower training. I had an awesome week.

Instead of just giving you the mileage stats I thought I would tell you what my week actually looked like.

Monday: Spin class and core/strength work out + 14 commuting miles

Tuesday: approximate: 2600 meter swim with relays + Killer 6 Mile track work out that included 6 x 800 meter repeats. #1-3 were suppose to be not super fast 4:20; 4:24; 4:22 Pretty consistent. #4 was supposed to be just a tad faster: 4:19. #5 was supposed to be the fastest (Amy told us this was going to the be the fastest of the day…not to hold back): 4:18. #6 a touch slower than #4-5 but not as slow as #1-3: I killed it: 4:13. There is something about the last repeat that just lights a fire underneath me! + 14 commuting miles

Wednesday: REST DAY!!

Thursday: 3400 meter swim; strength work out and lots of band use! 😦 + 5.5 mile run with hill repeats 6 x 120 minute repeats. That was not exactly what I was supposed to do. I did not have my phone to look up the work out and I was just doing it on memory! I was super excited that those were done. Last hill repeats to prep for Shamrock! + 7 commuting miles

Friday: Core/Strength work out + 1:15 trainer ride that included multiple sprints + 2 commuting miles

Saturday: 43 mile Ride including a different route to Hwy 30–flat; Climb Logie Trail–HARD; Skyline rolling hills–awesome; descend Newberry (laugh at all the suckas that were climbing it); flat home! + 1.5 mile transition run–FAST because I was just trying to keep up with Jenny! + 2 commuting miles

Sunday: 12.13 run –flat and rollers–AWESOME run! Felt really solid!

There you have it. My 7th week of Wildflower training.

Stats:
Swim: 6000 meters
Bike: 117 miles (77 road miles; 39 commuting miles)
Run: 25 miles
0 pilates –Sleep!!! I needed sleep!!
2 strength work-outs

Did you have a good long run? Does anyone use the Band in the pool? Do you love it or hate it?
