I am still trying to figure out the best time to blog! I haven't had much spare time the last couple of days so here is a quick overview of my last two workouts.
I admit I haven't been in the pool since my last triathlon in August!! Yah I took a bit of time off from the pool and the bike! I wasn't too sure what to expect at the first workout back because the swim isn't my strongest point (although I seem to do relatively well in the races, it's the run that kills my time!). I was pleasantly surprised that I instinctively remembered what to do! My technique was by no means great but my endurance was a little better than I expected. I am also no longer the slowest swimmer in the club! I felt like an old pro explaining some of the drills to the newbies and reassuring them that it does get easier over time. We focused almost completely on drills- one eye breathing, fingertip drag, roll like a log, catch up, reach for the wall, etc. I actually really enjoyed the swim! There were lots of people, which is typical of the first couple weeks of the semester. Overall swim distance was 1500m.
The workout for today was supposed to be another brick like Monday. Hubby and I were meeting some friends we haven't seen in a few years for dinner after work so I decided that rather than go to the U for training I would just run on the treadmill at home later in the evening. I think for the next little while I won't attend the regular training sessions on Wednesdays since I really need to get some studying done during the week and it just isn't happening right now.
Treadmill run details: 30 minutes, 4.55km, 6:36km/hr pace
Coming up tomorrow... bike/swim brick!!
