Fergi always has the best lines in songs no?
Swimming: 9400 yards/10000
I’m not too worried that I didn’t get that last 600. I’ll build up my swimming when I get back home. I didn’t get a full hour in on Monday which is where I missed it. My body needed rest that day though.
I’m super pumped that I have finally reached above 50 miles post injury . I took Monday off from running because my hip was bothering me and have had quality runs since then. All my miles (minus today in the pouring rain…but uh what was I thinking going out there first of all) have been great runs. My most notable was on Friday running 7 miles at a 7 minute pace.
If I had felt like crap I wouldn’t have run plain and simple.
Arctrainer: 2 hours
This workout week was everything and I wanted. None of my miles were crappy or bad, I took rest when needed and it was just a generally jazzy week.
Goals for Next Week:
Well some big things are happening next week.
- I have finals (so no classes and mass amounts of stress busting needed).
- I am driving home (big ole 12 hours)
- Oh and I’m running my last half marathon on Sunday. (the day after I get home).
With that being said.
I plan to get 45 or so miles depending on how my body feels.
3 hours of swimming
HERE IS THE BEST PART.
I have just 1 hour of Arctrainer crosstraining planned tomorrow. 🙂 My workout weeks should start to tend to look like that with minimum Arctrainer and more running. Like I have mentioned before, I used the Arctrainer as a clutch to burn more calories and would continually tire my body out. If there was an Arctrainer half marathon count me in and I would be able to justify spending countless hours on there-but there isn’t. It is a great source of crosstraining but there isn’t a point post injury recovery to be doing it for 5-6 hours weekly.
Since I have no photos for you, I’ll show you how I have been wasting time by not studying.
Question for you:
- How was your workout week? Any big plans this week?
- How do you feel about Arctrainers and Ellipticals? (Arcs are just another form of elliptical).
