T1: This was quite long. I needed to rinse off, dress, and then get a spin card a half hour before class started to actually get myself a good bike.
The water is still my weakness, but today was the best swim I have had in the last 5 months. It was quite consistent. My plan was to do 50M intervals with a 1/2 minute to 1 minute rest between each. About the first 10 laps were pretty slow and then kicked into gear my last 5 laps to get that blood flowing back into my legs.
Total distance: 800M in 30 minutes.
The Bike (spin):T2: After spin we had done some yoga. I was so relaxed I was almost ready to go home! I had about 12 minutes before getting on the treadmill and used the time to do some abs and push ups.
Our favorite spin instructor was back and ready to pretty much kill us! She had her coffee, we didn't. You do the math! There were a lot of sprints and a lot of hill climbs. I did a few sprints but had to remind myself to take it easy, and be consistent, otherwise I would never make it through my run. My goal was approximately 20 miles.
Total Distance: 19.83 miles in 47 minutes.
I hate the 30 minute rule on the treadmills. The guy before me took quite a while getting off and a cleaning the treadmill. I was shorted a few minutes. I think I started to feel really tired, a little sore in my upper legs, and also had to use the bathroom, but there was no time for that! I ran, slow.... very slow.
Total Distance: 2.15 miles in 26:52.
I will admit that I had a great time with this, despite the fact that it was indoor and a little discombobulated. Next time I try this (probably in early January), I am going to do the actual distance of a sprint triathlon... in a different format: swim the distance, rinse and get on a regular bike, and then get on the treadmill for 3.1 miles.
Now, I must get myself ready for a night out. I have dinner plans with a bunch of great friends to celebrate my birthday. Then, I believe we have some other things to attend to afterwards!
Tomorrow? Rest and a birthday post.
