This weekend was another busy one! Saturday was (unfortunately) filled with work. I was so exhausted after 10 hours that day (on top of the Mon-Fri already!), that I could barely muster to take a walk to dinner that night. I’m glad I did though – M & I shared some excellent Pequod’s pizza. Aaah, pizza.
Sunday was a bit off for me – I went to my triathlon program’s kick-off in the morning. Lots of information! I’m excited to get into the training… we start with getting back into swimming! I’m going to find a pool near me for the weeknight swim workouts.
I had planned on running as soon after I got back from the tri program at Fleet Feet, but was feeling hungry. So some chips & salsa, too hot! So then lots of water to cool off… I was then too full and felt off. Somehow I napped for 2 hours, and woke up. Time to run… no let’s wait and eat some swedish fish.
I finally made myself head out the door after 3:30 for the run. Breakfast and snacking all day didn’t make me feel that great, but I didn’t feel too horrible either. It was a nice run: 70 degrees and lots of people out enjoying the day on the lakefront. I ran into my friend Adam, who had been biking out there. Overall I took the run relatively easy (~11:00/mi pace overall), but I hit a 9:40 mile for mile 4! I figured I might as well push it for a mile, and then take it easy on the way back home. 8.3 miles total.
Today’s been resting – both from the weekend (only 7.5 hours worked today!) and running. Since I’m in “triathlon training” mode, tomorrow I’ll be biking to work to get my cycle on! I did do some planks today:
- side planks – 10 seconds on each side – yes I can do them.
- regular plank – 2 minutes!
It’s really not too bad! I think I want to practice getting longer in the side planks, but don’t want to wear myself out for my overall plank goal: 3 minutes by the end of June.
