We biked today. It was a good ride - short (14.5 miles in about 59 minutes) but good. MFLTP* kicked arse today - she took the lead on the later half and increased our pace by over 1 mph (in just half an hour). She pumped the whole way (no relaxing for her). It was awesome!
So, I have a training plan (which is what we're following to get ready for the Beach2Battleship half-Ironman in November) It's a good training plan - not a thing to complain about, but I want to add some degree of strength training each day. Nothing over the top - just a wee bit extra (mainly because my arms are just a wee bit too flabby and my butt is just a wee bit too big).
I think I'm going to designate each day a different strength day - like Mondays, I'll just work on planks. Tuesdays, I'll work on hamstrings. Wednesdays, I'll work on my butt. Thursdays, I'll work on _____________. I don't have it all figured out yet but I'm kind of excited about having a routine for this.
I did NOT put up the chin-up bar by GoFit.net today. I got too busy. I did spread a LOT of mulch.
Tomorrow - we run. Hip hip hooray!
