So many of you commented on my training schedule in my last post and were wondering where my rest days were going to fit in. To be honest, I partly forgot and I partly thought the day I did Turbo Sculpt would be enough.
You're all right. I know for a fact that I will need at least one full rest day of no physical activity, especially when I start to increase my long run distance. It's just a given. Don't worry, I will work in those rest days. The last thing I want to deal with is injury.
Today I am taking a complete rest day. This past week has been pretty decent, not up to par, but after a week of little to no workouts, it was a good week. Here's what it looked like:
Monday: Lift upper/lower body
Tuesday: Swim 2200M, 46:00, 2:05/100M
Wednesday: Run 1.30 miles, 15:00, 11:33/mile;
Bike 9.82 miles, 30:00, 19.64mph
Thursday: Turbo Sculpt, 40:00
Friday: Run 3.27 miles, 38:11, 11:40/mile
Swim 1200M, 23:00, 1:54/100M
Bike 21.34, 1:05:00, 19.69mph
When I look over my schedule for the next coming week, taking into consideration afternoon meetings at work and other extra curricular activities, here is what my week will hopefully look like:
Tuesday: Run 3-4 miles
Wednesday: Bike/15 minute run-off
Thursday: Run 3-4 miles (AM)
Turbo Sculpt (PM)
Saturday: Long Run (5-6 miles)
Sunday: Swim/Bike Brick
If I am too worn out or sore by Sunday, the Brick will just turn into a swim. We'll see how this week goes!
Happy Sunday, y'all!
