Monday: BJ and I hit the pool on our day off. The conditions were good because not that many people there but my arms felt a little tired. Honestly, all I could think about was the BBQ we were crashing that afternoon and my homemade guac. Yum!
62 lap swim – moderate to fast pace
Tuesday: I’m soo mad but I couldn’t workout. I had to work until 6:30pm (pretty much the latest I’ve ever worked, ever) and then I had a church meeting at 7pm. I barely had time to change out of my work clothes…
Wednesday: To make up for Tuesday, I did an intense hill workout. I ran hard for 20 minutes, sprinted up a HUGE hill five times (recovery was the jog back down) and ran the 20 minutes back home. I was so crazed about missing my workout on Tuesday that I sprinted my heart out – like so fast that I passed bikers going up the same hill. Yes, I’m that fast! I also felt like I was going to throw up when I was done….
When I got home, I did a quick gym workout – 3×10 squat jumps, 2×10 pushups, 3×10 biceps and 100 sit-ups on blue (my big, blue ball).
20 minute run (fast)
5x hill sprints (all out)
20 minute run home
Thursday: I went to the pool by myself (which says a lot about my dedication to training. Four words: I hate the pool). I’m lucky I got to the pool when I did. It wasn’t crowded (well, at least for the first 15 minutes) and I just barely finished my workout when the pool decided to close. I guess there was thunder in the area (??) – but it’s an indoor pool. Is that even legal?
800m (32 laps) – moderate pace
250m (10 laps) – kickboard
5x50m – all out sprint (15 second recovery)
250m (10 laps) – moderate pace
Friday: I decided to go for a morning run so I could take advantage of HH with my girlfriends after work.
30 minute run.
10 minutes – plyometrics
Saturday: The weather was nearly perfect and there was a professional bike race in the neighborhood – so I felt extra motivated to workout. I really wish I had my camelback toward the end of the run (it started to get really hot) but otherwise, I felt really strong.
33 minute run (4.5 miles)
15 minutes – exercises with the resistance band
3×10 squat jumps
2×10 lunge jumps
Sunday: Awesome weather and a nice breeze – so I just had to be outside.
35 minute recovery run with BJ (I’ve missed working out with him!)
