Training: Day 40 and Day 41
I forgot to blog yesterday… oops. Just remember— no blog does NOT equal no workout!
On the schedule: Strength workout
So yesterday I knew had to get in the pool… It had been, gosh, almost 2 weeks I think since I last swam.
But I started with a run because it was surprisingly pleasant outside.
Distance: 3.06 miles.
I got home from running, cooled off for a few minutes and headed off to swim. I swam 1050 yards in 30 minutes. Not the best, but hell, it’s better than nothing.
On the schedule: Bike 1 hour 15 minutes
Distance: 20 miles (!)
Pace: 3:55 (!)
YOU GUYS! A. That is my fastest ride to date, B. That is my FURTHEST ride to date, and C. It’s the first time I hit the distance I’ll be riding for my race.
I honestly think it has to do with the new pedals… I didn’t wear my cycling shoes today and I just felt more comfortable, which allowed me to ride faster and more confidently.
It’s such a relief to know that I can hit that distance, quite easily might I add, and still feel strong.
My race is two weeks from today. As in, 2 weeks from this very moment it’ll all be over… Oh goodness.
