Heather stretching after our morning run. Towards the end of the run we spiced it up a bit and played don't let the other person pass you. It was quite fun =) I highly recommend it.
Check out all the fresh produce. YUM. You can only see 1/10th of what was there.
They had lots of flavored honey sticks. I picked up one of each flavor for myself and a friend. I have actually never tried one yet, but I have a stash of about 15 in my little running box.
Who can say no to these asparagus? Standing them up like that made them look extra delicious.
So far this week my workouts have been going well. I am actually loving them. Which is good because I know that sometimes I truly don't love them.
For a recap, Monday I ran 5 Miles.
Tuesday: I went to running club and did 12 - 200/200's with 1 for 1 recovery. Basically the 200/200 is a 400 but the first 200 was supposed to be at 3k pace followed by the last 200 at 1 mile pace. So you come in relatively fast and then recover for the same amount of time. Then after that I headed to barbell class where I pumped some iron. I don't know about you guys but I NEED SOME MUSCLES! I totally slacked during my training for the last marathon and I don't want that to happen again.
Wednesday: I went biking for 23.5 miles. Then I went and swam 525m. I am trying to figure out how fast I can actually swim. I have no idea how to judge so today I just went at a pace where I felt in control and knew I could keep swimming that way for a while. So now for my Sprint Tri I am going to try to be faster. I don't really know how to shave off time in the pool? Speed workouts??? I dunno.
Thursday: Run 8 miles with friends from club. YAY for running buds. They rule.
Friday: Swim again and also attend a Total Conditioning class at lifetime.
Saturday: Tempo run with club followed by some kind of bike ride.
Does anyone know any good biking speed workouts? Like riding up the same hill 10 times or something??
Also, who likes honey sticks?
-I will try one tomorrow, as I was typing this post I realize it is ridiculous that I keep buying these things but really have no idea what they taste like.
Is there a swimmer out there can give me a good workout for the pool?
-I only have 1 workout that my swimming teacher gave us while doing a swim lesson a month or so back. I am looking for more.
Happy Running, Swimming and Biking all -Jen
