Sunday, April 7 —
Monday — Monday was a long swim focusing on technique. With baseball practice now in full swing, my free time is dwindling. With all of my training, eating dinner after 8 PM has become the norm for me. I am considering coming straight home from work and eating dinner quickly before doing my workouts. The pool closes at 9:30 so getting home and eating by 6 or 6:30 would give me enough time to still make it back to the gym and get a good workout in before showering and going to sleep.
Tuesday — Nice Bike workout to test my limits and heart rate. I did a 15 min warm-up and then starting at 15 MPH held a constant speed for 90 sec recording my perceived effort and heart rate. After 90 sec, I increased my speed by one MPH and recorded the same information. I repeated this until i could no longer hold the speed. I got up to 24 MPH and got my heart rate up into the 180s. A very tough workout, but also a lot of fun. After this, I hit the pavement and got in a nice 20 min run
Wednesday — Unplanned rest day. Practice ran late and I hit some traffic on the way home. DIdnt get back into New Rochelle until after 7:30.
Thursday — Supposed to be run and lift, ended up being just a run. It was freezing outside and my knees were killing me as I ran. Ended up being a little shorter than planned, but I got most of the run done.
Friday — planned rest
Saturday — 3 hour indoor ride w/ 20 min T-Run 50 miles on the bike and 2.25 mi on the T-Run
Sunday — unexpected rest. Went to Massachusetts for the weekend, today I drove home and put together a new shelving unit. Day just got away from me.
I am so excited that warmer weather is coming! Workouts are so much easier when you don’t have to battle the frigid weather.
