week of march 2

So, nothing nearly as exciting as the week before...

swim -->28 minutes (1500 yards with 1:56 per 100 yds --> this is good for me)

bike --> 1:45 (all on the trainer but with ILT thrown in)

run -->43 minutes (3.5 miles - slow but that's okay)

strength --> 1:29

Total time -->4:25

It's weird seeing that I spent almost as much time strength training as I did riding. I did like it - some arms, some lower body, lots of core. And, I felt it. A couple of days this week I was sore. We really did only have one day running. I didn't slack. I think I have more running this week. Even if I don't, I think I'll put some more in. I like to run and I want to increase my speed.

There were a couple of days when I didn't feel very much like doing anything (for various ridiculous reasons) but I did my workout anyway. Each time I did, I thought "hey, I'm getting stronger and this is helping me be able to do the half-iron next year - go me!"

Pretty boring right now. Maybe something exciting next week.


  1. yea you can make something exciting happen now. it got up to 82 deg here in SC yesterday. get in a good run while the sun is out, it will warm your entire soul. And good luck to John!

  2. Sounds like a pretty good week to me, sister!

    I'm more upset that you let the likes of carolina john comment on your blog! Standards, sister, standards! He'll be a stone tied 'round your neck and he'll drag you down with him ...

    ... all the way to (*shudder*) South Carolina!


  3. Woo hoo!!!! (<---That's the sound of celebrating.) We're supposed to CELEBRATE and ABSORB FITNESS. Remember? But I'm not sure what the sound of absorbing fitness would look like in a blog comment - so you may have to take some extra celebration. WOO HOO!! And WOO HOO again! Ok - now I'm starting to sound like an owl and I'm pretty sure there is NOTHING about owls in the training plan.
